Argiope is Latin for “with bright face” (Cameron 2005);
aurantia, in Latin, basically means “overlaid with gold”.
The first time I spotted an Argiope wrapping a grasshopper was out at Oak Point in 2010. This spider lady is a fabulous "visual aid" teaching tool at my new job. I still worry about saying her name incorrectly, so I asked some kids what her name should be. They liked Sophia for the spider.
