Genus Metellina
Check out genus Metellina and see what you think.

Spot on thank you Lynette! This one is identical to the T so I suspect the same species. This one was also found in same county and same setting.

I see the species listed on it as a number. Is there a name to the species or is this a reference to research or a book?

The numbers are just reference #s that each image in BugGuide has. At the very top left of each image, there is a photo #; like this image of yours says Photo#563382. No reference to anything besides just the image within You can use the search box to find images if someone has given you their #.

Yes, that's one of my spiders
I'm glad you pointed it out, because I needed to move that one to species level. Rod Crawford has told me that most of these that are late in the year are M. segmentata.
