Moved
Moved from Argiope.

Moved
Moved from Spiders. It hasn't eaten, yet. I may try different prey, but it may just be near a molt.

 
Molt
Has it molted at all yet? The palps look female at this stage in the game... is that still the case?

 
It died
I had a hard time getting it to eat. I put it in a vial for Kevin just in case.

 
..
Ah, ok. Just curious.

Argiope trifasciata - Banded Argiope
is my guess.

 
A. trifasciata
I agree. I've seen them look like this in Austin.
