Hi, see above image for ID. 🙂
Thanks, can you tell it’s sex?
Superficially it looks female, I would need to see a clear image of the underside to say for certain. Immature males and immature females can be indistinguishable, it’s getting late in the season so it’s more likely to be mature. Also if it is a relatively large spider it’s likely female.
Here is a mature male and female for comparison:
I believe it a male it looks just like the one missr79 posted
