Alternative name

That is an alternative name, yes. Most key references refer to it as just the "Garden Spider".

I agree.. but..

"Garden Spider" is the commoner usage, but "Garden Cross Spider" is a much better name imho as it ties in nicely with the latin, and differentiates it from the equally ubiquitous metellina pairing (sometimes diminished as "lesser garden spider").

Cvf "House Spider" used for Teggies, when steatoda, pseudophyrs, pholcus all occur at least as frequently within houses.
