Wow, thank you for your feedback (i put the arrow on in powerpoint). The first spider in the second link looks like mine. Those types of spiders are really interesting. Thanks :)

First off, I love your diagram with the arrow! This little spider is from the Genus Cycloso, Trashline Orbweavers. It is hard to tell from your photo but it is most likely Cyclosa turbinata. You can talk a look at the pictures on the link here from and see if it looks like your spider.

I have a spotting of this species as well. I think they are very interesting indeed! Your spider is a female.
