Trashline Orbweaver Spider (Cyclosa spp. possibly turbinata)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Trashline Orbweaver Spider (Cyclosa spp. possibly turbinata)

The common name comes from the stabilimentum (the thing in the middle of the web) that is composed of dead prey and other debris. Spider hides midway.
