Your letter to the bugman: Saw this spider on a dead oak leaf today, very interesting body with spikes!

Would love to know what it is.

This intriguing spider is an Arrow-Shaped Micrathena, Micrathena sagittata, and according to BugGuide: “This spider does not pose a danger to humans (and neither do any others in this family).”
Thanks for that! I did actually find that eventually but nice to have it confirmed. Beautiful spider I have not seen before.
