I'm thinking Neoscona oaxacensis. Confirmations or other suggestions?

This image is being used in the eye arrangement article, thanks!

Nice image
That's a very nice image. I just took a picture of what I think is the same species that I was quite happy with until I saw yours. The lighting is perfect, the background is very nice and the detail on the eyes is great.

I took my picture in Laguna beach.

Moved from Spiders.

Thanks, Jeff. I remember that you identified one of my images before (turned out to be the same species in fact). I was tempted to put this one straight into the guide, but the two specimens looked a bit different and the last thing I want to do is put false info in the guide. Thanks again for your help.
