I found this spider in the Western Area Peninsular Forest Reserve in Sierra Leone - can anyone ID it? I've had a suggestion that it may be an orbweaver or argiope but that the colouring would be unusual...?
Any info much appreciated!
It looks like some Net-casting spider (Deinopidae).

On http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Deinopidae_species there is a species list over Deinopidae which claims to be complete.
Good luck in your further search!
