Comments & ID Thoughts

best guess, maybe a young neoscona arabesca. small orb weaver, web about 6ft off the ground between the branches of a shrub. seen on the web at night, and both off and on during the day. pictured with lacewing fly for size comparison. ventral side is yellowish, and from what i can see it has two white spots similar to those of neoscona crucifera. for some reason (age?) i can't see any sensory hairs on her legs or abdomen
