Comments & ID Thoughts

I've never seen this kind of Spider before! I was scared of its possible bite dangers... I found it in my clothes hanging out.
Please provide me with the details... I might have killed it but something stopped me to do so!!!

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is an Orb-weaver (Araneidae), maybe a Neoscona sp. … there are a few other genera that have similar looking species with a brown spot like that though so I’m not sure yet which yours is. None of the orb-weavers are known to be of medical significance to people, they’re beneficial and help to keep the insect population in check.
