This looks a lot like Gibbaranea bituberculata. Not sure the banding on the legs is exactly a match.

I don’t know, I looked through a couple papers that I knew had Neoscona images from your region and didn’t see anything that looked close. Gibbaranea bituberculata seems to be a common species with a wide range though. There are a lot of images of it online to compare to. I couldn’t ignore the similarity.

You’re welcome. I deleted that blank image for you, I think that option should be there the next time the site is updated.

Unfortunately the site only allows for one image to be uploaded at a time so they would either need to be uploaded separately or on another image sharing site and linked to here. This site’s administrator has been working on an update but I don’t know if he figured out how to fix the multiple image issue, it’s definitely one of the things that should be a priority.

That is the current way of getting around the problem. We don’t know when it will be changed.

The problem with collages is that everything becomes more difficult to see in the thumbnail image and if it’s a new species to the site it doesn’t look right for use as a representative image on the species page. And it seems like more work for you. Just do whatever is easiest.
