Comments & ID Thoughts

Hey guys, I don't know anything about spiders. After some research my guess is that this is some sub-specie of a Golden Orb spider :? Amy help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I agree it looks like a Black-legged Nephila, Nephila fenestrata.

Unless she’s spun her web someplace inconvenient for people I’d just let it be. If she’s spinning her web across a walkway or in front of a door I’d relocate her.

Many species of Orb-weaver live around 1 year, I don’t know if that’s true of this species or not.
