Golden Silk Orbweaver Spiderling - Trichonephila clavipes

Golden Silk Orbweaver Spiderling - Trichonephila clavipes
Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
May 18, 2014
Size: ~3 mm (body length)
Based on the appearance, location (not far from where a brood of Nephila clavipes emerged on April 28), and type of web (orb web with additional barrier webs surrounding it), I strongly suspect that this is a Nephila clavipes spiderling.

This picture shows some of the web.
