Not sure. I only collect and raise true insects, no other arthropods, sorry.

It is really pretty, did you ask on arachnoboards? They will want a clear picture of the eyes. And probably an abdomen profile.

This is Larinioides sclopetarius (commonly known as a bridge orbweaver or gray cross spider). This species is variable in markings. Here is one that is similar to yours.

I would encourage you to submit this to BugGuide, as it doesn't have any November submissions from Wisconsin.

Ahhhh, Larinioides. It's one I always see, remember when I see it, and then promptly forget the name again lol. Thanks for the correction, Ungoliant!
