Country Guest - Neoscona crucifera
West Virginia, USA
September 27, 2011
This picture was taken in WV by the mother of one of my daughter's coworkers. Don't know much more about it, but would love to know what it is!

Moved upon agreement
Moved from Orb Weavers.

Moved from ID Request. It's a neat web shot. Can you find out what county, and ask the person if they took any closer shots of the spider?

Perfectly harmless and beneficial orb weaver
Maybe Neoscona crucifera, but that's just a guess. Sorry, can't see much detail.
