An orb weaver from the Argiope family. It is the A. Sector, mostly confused with the similar A. Lobata.
It's web was close to the ground in tall weeds. It was found along with a few others close by on a farm near the coast of Surman, Libya.
Thanks to Carlo from www.aracnofilia.org I can say for sure this is an A. Sector.
