5762 I believe this to be an orb weaving spider – I don’t see one exactly like this on your site. This was found in Montreal, Quebec but may have hitched a ride back from the region north of Quebec City. Thank you for your help, we are fascinated by this amazing creature. -Angus
This is an interesting colour variant of Araneus marmoreus, commonly known as the marbled orb weaver. It appears to be variety pyramidatus, which supposedly is found only in Europe; see http://tinyurl.com/zklhycz Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
