Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a male Orbweaver but I don’t recognize him beyond that from this angle. Do you have a dorsal shot? The turreted eyes and the palps (appendages near the spider’s mouth) look distinctive but I’m not familiar enough with species in Panama to recognize it straight away.


I think this is a great shot, just not ideal for the beginnings of an ID. It’s not hopeless, it might be narrowed down eventually.


Just another post for now. The site is still being built and the linking function hasn’t been enabled yet.
