Comments & ID Thoughts

From looking at other findings, I believe this species is Trichonephila Clavipes (Golden Silk Orb-weaver). Doesn’t match the color of the Golden Silk Orb-weaver but has all the other physical descriptions.

You got it! Spiders have quite a bit of variation in color within a species. The “golden silk” in the common name varies in how gold colored it is. The yellowish pigmentation of the silk comes from this species’ diet.
