Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Can anybody tell me what kind of spider eggs these are? They look like they are pretty close to maturity. I got them from a crack in the overhang of the house.

Hi, I think they are Cyclosa species eggs. Cyclosa are called trashline orbweavers. They make long stringy egg sacks with debris mixed in, thought to serve as a decoy of an adult spider. The mother might be in there (dark lumpy thing to the right) – or it could be decoy trash.
