Hi, welcome to SpiderID. 🙂 Lovely orbweaver, I’m not familiar enough with the spiders of your region to be certain of species. Did you consider or were you able to rule out Aculepeira ceropegia?

I considered A. carbonaria too, but just googling and looking at images that are purportedly that species I thought that one looked different enough and that A. armida had bolder markings, I thought it matched nicely with those IDed as A. ceropegia but given the angle and my lack of experience with them I’m not confident.
