Tent-Web Spider? Pan-Web!

Cyrtophora citricola

Update!

Cyrtophora exanthematica

 

I found this little spider under its panbowl-like web. The web is the reverse of the orb spiders’ as it is more like a cup whereas the orb spiders’ webs are like umbrellas. I assumed it is a tent-web spider until I found this pan web. The spider hides under the web and is easily mistaken for a leaf.
