Arrowshaped Micrathena

Hi Jean,
This pretty little spider is a harmless Arrowshaped Micrathena,
Micrathena sagittata.  According to BugGuide, it spins its small webs in open woods.

thank you ever so much for identifying this spider, it really is very pretty.

  1. I have what I think is an Orb Weaver but, not sure which kind it is, how do I email a photograph so you can help me identify my spider or a link I may use.
