Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is actually looks like a Metazygia sp. as opposed to a Furrow Orbweaver (Larinioides sp.). It looks like Metazygia wittfeldae, but I’m also seeing a Metazygia carolinalis as an option. I need to read up on what that one looks like.


It is a neat find. A Furrow Orb-weaver would have been a much more common find. I was able to rule out M. carolinalis so this should be M. wittfeldae. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
