Araneus or Eriophora species Green Araneid cf Eriophora biapicata

A medium-sized, bright-green Araneid collected on Obi Obi Creek near Kenilworth, Queensland. This could be a colour variation of Eriophora biapicata or one of its closely allied species. Body length of this female about 5mm. Somewhat more triangular than Araneus eburnus and less triangular and peaked than Araneus arenaceus. There are many spiders like this that may belong to described species or may be variations within a known species. Only close examination of the specimen would decide the identification.
