Unlike Spotted Orbweaver(Neoscona crucifera) they do not have a cross like pattern on back and instead a mirroring white dots pattern on back. Has no white cross shaped pattern on abdomen and a black spot on belly with four white dots in it (top two spots close to fur so sometimes look brown) instead of two unlike the Cross Orbweaver(Araneus diadematus).
Lives in the United States from Maine to Florida in the east, to Minnesota in the Midwest, to Arizona in the southwest, and in Mexico.
