Hi There,
On a recent trip to Kauai, I spotted this giant orbweaver:

It seemed to have unique markings and I was unable to find much reference to it. Yours seems to be the only website I could find. It appears that you’ve identified it as Argiope Avara Kauaiensis. I wanted to share my picture of it. This one was found on the Kalalau Trail and seemed to be about 3.5 to 4 inches from toe to toe.

Dear Marko,
Thanks for providing our archives with a gorgeous image of this under-represented indigenous Hawaiian Orbweaver.
