Comments & ID Thoughts

genus neoscona I would think, perhaps arabesca. found in my yard, where I currently have at least a few dozen juvenile N. arabescas (including one previously identified on this site). posting because whereas the others all have an almost neon yellow coloration this one is more white/cream colored, so perhaps not the same species

Hi,and welcome to he site. I could be mistaken, but I see Larinioides genus in this gal, that spotted dark ‘V’ pattern is rather consistent with these.
Larinioides cornutus for example:

While I have seen some Neoscona with similar pattern,I could be certain seeing the ventral patterns.
