Cyrtophora sp., female with egg sac. Wikipedia says, “Although they are in the “orb weaver” family, they do not build orb webs. Their tent-like, highly complex non-sticky web is sometimes considered a precursor of the simplified orb web. These webs are aligned horizontally, with a network of supporting threads above them.”
