Comments & ID Thoughts

I live in Michigan. Spider has Very large eyes. Scary! Could not kill with bug/spider spray. Found them in my yard again today. Worried about my kids.

Almost looks like a cute plushy toy, don’t see a spider here.

Curious how you pegged this, I can’t make one single feature tying this to Neoscona,Aranea for that matter and that is after enhancement.
