Spotted Orb Weaver Spider

Neoscona sp.


Some species of Orbweaver in the genus Neoscona, its mostly brown with a tan line going across the abdomen. The other specimen seems to be darker in coloration.


Found on an ampalaya (bitter gourd) plantation that's off season.


The 2nd and 3rd photo is a different specimen but I believe is the same species, as you can see it has caught a small moth for dinner. I was confuse for a while trying to identify this spider, it might just be Neoscona molemensis with an odd pattern and coloration.
