When I first noticed this spider, about ten days ago, it was sitting on a white cocoon attached to the dead leaf of an oleander: the first three photos. As the days have passed it has encased the cocoon in other dead leaves, so now the cocoon isn't visible at all: the last three photos. The spider's body (excluding legs) is about 6mm across.

    Likely ID
    A spider (Araneae sp)
    Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
