Spiny Backed orbweaver, Gasteracantha

TangledWeb

Yes, that is the best answer. Gasteracantha cancriformis can be yellow and is most likely to be found in the Dominican Republic. Gasteracantha hasselti looks very similar. I’m not sure if ranges into Dominican Republic. Is anyone here more familiar with the Gasteracantha spp. of Dominican Republic?

I love them little critters.
