Comments & ID Thoughts

I thought it might be a "garden cross spider" but the mark on it's bad seems so different!

Hi, you are correct with orb weaver, and is a different specis from the cross orb weaver. Embarrassing I know this spider, just can’t recall the species. Take me a while sifting through my documentation to find it.
ItsyBitsy should see this and peg it for you.
