This spider was on the wall of my basement in northeastern Pennsylvania in summer, is it an Orbweaver?
This is a yellow individual of the highly variably colored Marbled Orbweaver, Araneus marmoreus, and you can verify our identification on BugGuide. Bright orange Marbled Orbweavers are commonly called Pumpkin Spiders.
