I have several of these in my backyard, but this one is the biggest...so far. Can anyone identify what kind it is? I'm in Southern California.

Compared to pictures on the web(WW that is) this looks like another fine specimen of Neoscona crucifera, seems to be one of DG's most common spiders across the continent. And harmless.

Thanks Sally. I feel better knowing it's harmless.
