Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was found in central Iowa while pulling weeds from around some small bushes. It’s about the size of a quarter, including the legs. I think it’s a type of orb weaver but uncertain.

Thank you for helping with an identification! SpiderID.com is entirely run by volunteers and we can always use more help. You answered it perfectly. To see most of the photo submissions that we didn’t know or didn’t get to yet, click a location in Locations in the three bar menu. After the finalized submissions is the mix of answered and unanswered submissions for a location. We don’t have a moderator to file the answered ones during the pandemic, she has to take care of other work. Thanks again!
