I’m pretty sure it’s Arienella displicata, a Six-sootted Orbweaver. They have more than six spots, but hey who’s counting?! https://bugguide.net/adv_search/bgsearch.php?taxon=8426&location%5B%5D=VA The link is to BugGuide.net’s data for Arienella species in VA. They say it is the only Araniella species in the US, though our site says differently. We go with what their site says. 🙂 Thank you for adding the photo to our site! I learned something new and will add your photo to our data and photo gallery when I can.
