I think this might be Araneus bicentenarius, the Giant Lichen Orb-weaver, but I’m not sure. How big was it? Did it look green to you or is it just the lighting?


Wonderful! Definitely Araneus bicentenarius, then. Yes, I’d love to see the other pictures. You can upload them individually as new submissions and reference in the description that they are the same specimen shown here. Lots of our regulars here will post updates on their various spiders as time goes on; we always love to see those.


I would be thrilled to see one in person, especially after seeing your other picture. I have seen lots of pictures, but never with anything for scale. She is enormous!
