Argiope bruennichi and Argiope trifasciata are very similar, I'm not an expert of spider, but there's a special design on the back that form three small arches: this makes me think that it could be a female of Argiope Bruennichi. Also the color of the legs is different: those of argiope bruennichi are pink, while those of argiope trifasciata are more yellow. Please, correct me if I'm wrong. :)
