I literally have no idea what this spider is. It still haunts my nightmares.

Possibly an Orbweaver in genus Argiope. Some of them can have a flattened appearance to the abdomen. This one is really cool! I tried various searches online and didn’t find it. Hopefully someone else will have better results. My first guess was a Fishing Spider, but I couldn’t find it that way either.
