Conch Shell Spider?

December 14, 2022

I came across this spider on a hike several weeks ago on St John USVI.  Its posterior resembles a conch shell.  Seeking its identity all I found is an argiope spider, with ID sites showing  pictures of spiders looking very much like this one but also many spiders that very dissimilar.  Anybody have a better sense of what it is?  Bill Fintel, you should be on this.  Tony Florio, you too!
