https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-16/spider-scientist-samantha-nixon-venom-research-qld/11866434 This is a link to a story about an Australian researcher using spider venom from backyard spiders to research formulas for new medications. She needs spider donations. It is unfortunate that the article implies that orbweavers are deadly. She might be able to identify your spider more quickly than we can. I’m still working on it. If you get an answer please tell us what it is.
