Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Same spider as images 48067 and 48068. Smaller spiders found near this large spider have not been identified, but there are several possibilities. Will focus on the large spider which is 1.8-2.0 cm in length and 1.0 cm across at the widest point. Among the suggested IDs from feedback posts are Argiope aurantis (Black and Yellow Garden Spider), and Philodromis (a genus of crab spiders), and Nephila clavipes (Golden Silk Orb Weaver). Also, is it possible that it could be Nephila cravat (Joro Spider) given the lack of hair brushes on the legs?
