Comments & ID Thoughts
Haven't a clue, but I see that it looks the same as the spider in a photograph recently submitted from a woman in Florida.

Yes I would say Gasteracantha cancriformis. I saw your note. This one is odd-looking because the red and black colors blend together. The only other Bahamian spider I could find that comes close is Gasteracantha kuhlii. There are quite a few downloadable programs to 3D print G. cancriformis, I don’t see that as much with other spiders.
Very interesting. Thank you.
