Comments & ID Thoughts
Argyrodes elevatus, I believe. Found in grass on the edge of the brush, on the end of deciduous forest. Didn't see a KY record so I thought I would place it.

This is the Red-spotted Orb Weaver, Araneus cingulatus, in the family Araneidae.
Found one in my front yard. Very colorful, small. I was concerned because of its triangle making on it back if it was poisonous
Spotted in my front yard, this date, Jun 4th, 2020, Hamilton, Ohio. I have a photo on my phone, but I haven’t uploaded it to my computer.
I will as soon as I purchase the connector from the cellphone to my computer. Purchase a new phone, the old adapter does not work.
Is it poisonous? Do they have a triangle shape on their back?
