Spider Identification #724939
Asked September 18, 2020, 12:34 AM EDT
Can you identify this spider? It's about the size of a quarter. It had, apparently, drowned in my dog's water dish this morning.
Columbia County Oregon
It's difficult to be certain of the ID. My best guess is a male orb weaver in the family Araneidae.
Whatever the ID, the good news is that Oregon doesn't have any deadly spiders.
