Comments & ID Thoughts

A wasp left it in my room. Not sure what it’s called, it’s on a tan color side with 2 spots on the back.

It’s an orbweaver kind of spider, I don’t know which one it is yet. Wasps abduct them and put an egg inside the spider. The wasp larva grows inside the spider and eats it. Some wasps bring the spiders to one place, probably to guard them. Some trap the spider in a hole in the ground. Is the spider or able to move? It may not have an egg in it yet. The spiders eat insects like wasps to get nourishment for their own eggs. It all comes out fair in the end.
