Total length (with legs): 40-45 mm.
I watched this beautiful, black and yellow spider wrap up a snack in her web this morning. The web had a stabilimentum (reinforced area), which looks like a vertical zigzag band near the middle of the web.
Habitat: Suspended between plants on the edge of a pond in a mixed forest.
