Araneidae, Eriophora sp.. At first sight it looks for me like Eriophora fuliginea, but also Ravilla and Edax have this white stripe. There is a great variability within species and age of the spider! Although I am still tending to Fuliginea, I have suggested Eriophora sp. as scientific ID.
If the belly is fiery orange, than it is Fuliginea, btw..., however, I cannot see it very clearly in your spotting.
