orb-weaver spider; black legs with whitish rings; "hair" on legs; Black body with yellow patch strip on back
Dry Tropical Forest, Pacific lowlands; Wet season
From my research I believe that I narrowed it down to the Araneidae family due to its salient feature of orb-weaving. And from the images at EOL, I believe I can suggest that it is within the Argiope genus.
