Moved from ID Request.

Perhaps ...
... Cyclosa - Trashline Orbweavers?

 
Yes
.

 
thanks ...
... but which one? I'm confused by the orange dots.

 
I'll let you try again
then I'll tell you.
Step 1) Igonore the spots and read the descriptions on the various species pages. That should tell you.
Step 2) Look at the images in the guide and see that we have many with orange spots under the species that this one fits.

 
Okay then ...
- C. walckenaeri is out of range (and looks wrong)
- C. caroli looks different

Found orange spots in some C. turbinata pics.
Are you referring to the "anterior dorsal humps"?

If yes, my spider would be a turbi female!?

 
Looks like it to me
!

 
Thanks again ...
... for the help!
