Comments & ID Thoughts

I have no idea what kind of spider this is. It was the first spider I ever encountered in Canada that had color other than brown or grey. Leg span was around an inch (25mm).

Sighted a pumpkin spider in Annapolis Royal NS in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints parking lot today September 15, 2019. Beautiful display.

Fantastic, I’m jealous! I’m trying to find as many species as I can and I haven’t found this one yet.
