Hi, it’s a Tropical Orbweaver, Eriophora ravilla. It is a little bit odd -looking one.

Life of me, cant find the species, I hear them called the brown orb weaver. Looking through Neoscona genus for those dark red femurs but haven’t found something to compare.
TangledWeb’s suggestion may be highly possible.

Are you thinking Neoscona domiciliorum?

BugmanDan

Probably,been quite a while, I just know they are unofficially called the brown orb weaver.
You are right with the species here, I can get sidetracked spotting somthing like the dark femurs and tying them to spotted orb weavers. You get my age, confusion comes easy.

I guess the water droplets are the latest style for orb weavers.
