Moved from Araneus.

Thanks for the id. The pattern on the abdomen doesn't match exactly with the male Araneus marmoreus in the guide, although I'm sure there's some variability, so I'll place it to genus for now.

I think it's the male of Aran
I think it's the male of Araneus marmoreus, at least not Larinioides.
