Argiope aruantia has numerous common names. In addition to Yellow Garden Spider, it is also called Golden Orb-weaver (California), Yellow Garden Orbweaver, Writing Spider and Black and Yellow Argiope. Now that the females are maturing, reaching their maximum size and laying eggs, they are being noticed, and we expect to be receiving numerous more identification requests for spiders in the genera Argiope and Araneus, the Orb Weavers.
