Description

I suspect this is an immature female Banded Garden Spider (Argiope trifasciata). It's too big to be male and in other images the palps were small. Body length about 8-10mm. (males are 4-6mm)

It looks like this one on bugguide: bugguide.net/node/view/356606

Found in a field near Mohawk Park in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Id corrections appreciated.

My #61 spider this year.

Description from Wikipedia

Argiope trifasciata (also known as the banded garden spider in the United States) is a species of spider found around the world. It can be found in certain areas of Europe, namely the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands or Madeira. The similar looking Argiope bruennichi is common in the Azores. Considered a pest in some areas, they typically begin to appear during autumn from early September to late October as temperatures start dropping.
