Comments & ID Thoughts

I have no idea what this could be. At first I figured a type of crab spider but I thought they usually are on plants. This was on the side of a house.

This is an Orb Weaver of some kind, hard to make out details, but I’d put it at Eustala, Neoscona, or Eriophora.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I agree with the above suggestion, leaning Eriophora ravilla (Tropical Orb-weaver), but not positive.
