Almost A Face Spider

I met this guy while walking around a desert wash one night looking for snakes. I was about 2 inches from having a spider friend on my nose when I saw it. Whew! Big and weird looking … the first of these I’ve seen.

Entomologists? Any help with the ID?

  1. Probably one of the orb weavers (family Aranaeidae) – which one I couldn’t say.

    Looks like a spotted orbweaver (Neoscona domiciliorum). She’s gorgeous!
