Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this spider in a web constructed in some shrubs beside a walking path at Southwest Williamson County Regional Park. It was about 2-3mm in size. I think it’s a dwarf spider.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is an Orb-weaver (Araneidae), looks like Hypsosinga rubens. It has a few color morphs so some examples may look rather different.
