Your letter to the bugman: I read about the uncatalogued Nephila spider from Taiwan that was submitted by Dane Harris in 2011. Could you please help me identify a similar-looking spider from Singapore? Thanks

We located this image on FlickR, also from Singapore, that identifies a similar looking Golden Silk Spider as Nephila piplipes, but we suspect that is a misspelling of Nephila pilipes as a nearly identical image is posted to Wikimedia Commons. Most images identified as Nephila pilipes, including on iNaturalist, look quite different.
