Spider ID

Client brought this spider into our office.  It was found outside the house in the foundation area.  It appears to me to be some type of orb-web spider.  Can someone help me to correctly identify this spider?  I sent these pictures to PJ, but he is out until the 25th.  Thanks.

  1. George, check the eye arrangement. To confirm that it is an orbweaver, there should be four eyes clumped together in the middle on a raised knob, and then two eyes off to the left and two off to the right. There is a picture a little less than halfway down this page: https://bugguide.net/node/view/84423
