Your letter to the bugman:  Hi there,
Friends of mine in Everglade City sent me this image of a very cool spider. It’s the size of a pinky fingernail. It was seen on their kitchen counter (eek??) in Everglade City Florida…Any help you can give is truly appreciated. (I’m better with insects than arachnids)
Thanks!!

Green Orbweaver

Dear Katja,
The best we can do at this time is to provide a general family name.  This is a harmless Orbweaver in the family Araneidae.

Thank you Daniel,
They will be happy to hear it is harmless, since they turned it loose in their yard! Any further information would be appreciated…it really is a cool looking spider,
Katja
