Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was known to be the Samon spider because it can only be found on a hill of wide 2 feet height of grass. It's body is almost similar to the neoscona genus but the body has a pattern of an obvious arrow, legs were a bit larger and longer, and it can easily be distinguish by its size that doubles the size of a normal neoscona genus spider. I would like a help from someone to study the habitat and nature of this spider that is authentic in Isabela ph.
