Gold-spotted Orb Weaver

18mm | January 20, 2011 | Armonia Nature Preserve, Limon Province, Costa Rica

This large orb weaver was hanging out in the understory. I believe this might be Eriophora nephiloides. Most online photos for the species show a brighter yellower abdomen. It appears to be quite variable. Here’s a photo of one similar to mine (along with what’s pictured at wikipedia).
