Comments & ID Thoughts

There are several of these that live inside the railing on my balcony with webs extending out the bottom. This morning I caught one eating fly brains. I think it's a Zygiella x-notata but I'd love to hear some more experienced opinions.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 Lateral views can be difficult to get a species ID from. Do you have a shot that shows more of the dorsal side of the spider?

A separate submission at this time. The site is still being built and hopefully linking images will be an added feature in the future.
