    Spider ID
    My wife and I were down at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana this past weekend. While on a trail we came across a very unusual spider. My wife is a naturalist and I too am not necessarily ignorant of the natural world. Still, we cannot ID this spider. Closest picture I've found that resembled it was the Arrow Shaped Micrathena spider... however, the one we saw was more black and white with rather large spines on it's abdomen. Any ideas?
