Four Spot Orb?

Please can you identify this spider for me. I think it looks a bit like a four spot orb but I'm not sure. Thankyou

    Re: Four Spot Orb?

    Are the colours in the photo a good representation?  From the markings and the shape of the abdomen I'd guess at Araneus diadematus but I've never seen one that colour. Maybe it's colour had changed to match its surroundings. Where did you find it? Anyway, I can't totally rule out quadratus - if you could get a good photo of her epigyne (on the underside of the abdomen) that should settle it because they're a bit different.
