Larinioides
Thanks Jeff, Omar, and John and Jane. This spider just looked unusual, probably because we normally see the females.

See
here Tom.
The shape of the palps match the genus as well.

 
Man, and we were gonna say Larinioides!
We woulda looked so smart!

i see

Certainly looks like one to us, Tom
It will be interesting to see what Jeff says. We can't even pick a genus!

 
6 eyes?
unless im missing out on two more eyes this spider only has 6, so it cant be an orb weaver, right?

 
We just figured they were there
and we just weren't seeing them through all the hair, but....

 
also
aaaaaaaah. yes
