Anyone?

Moved
Moved from Orb Weavers. This is our best guess at this time. It might also be N. crucifera. Compare your picture to the picture here. (a little over half way down the document)

Moved
Moved from Neoscona crucifera.

Thank guys!
Thank for the help

 
Hi Jason....
Looking at this again... I'm not convinced of Neoscona crucifera any longer. I'll try to look at it again this week.

Moved
Moved from Spiders. Yes Eriophora is probably a stretch. Those orange spots showing through were throwing me off, but I agree it must be N. crucifera.

We don't get any sense of Eriophora
so we would suggest Neoscona crucifera, but as Lynette says above, more images would help confirm that.

Moved
Moved from ID Request. I'd like to see more of this one. (ventral view) I can't tell if it's Neoscona or Eriophora.
