very similar and the closest

very similar and the closest to a match i have seen , but looking at the pictures of A. opisthographa compared to this the body shape seems slightly different , and the carapace seems to be different?

Araniella

I agree it is one of the species in this genus. The male and female are a rather different shape, not sure if that could explain the differences you've noticed?
