Irish, I have not seen this beautiful spider in our place. I'm tempted to have it shipped here! Beautiful specimen

Same species as another spotting in the Philippines too.

Except that I don't think it is a Gasteracantha janopol because it does not match the description of Gasteracantha janopol written in "Riceland Spiders of South and Southeast Asia".

Remembers me of a Gasteracantha sp., but I am not sure if it is Gasteracantha arcuata, which is quite common.
