Not sure of species, this was taken in Woodsboro,Texas. House had many in varying sizes.
Was remodeling a house, seen at least 10 of these on this house. This was biggest ( body was size of a quarter), on the roof. It hopped when confronted, to get away. Not a scientist, but webs were generally made to catch insects. Not special about web. Thanks for any info. Closest species is located in the Philippines.
