    I am looking at identifying garden spiders from my yard and was wondering if this could be Eriophora pustulosa, that was referred to in Volker et al's 'Guide to Spiders of Australia' as being common in SE Australia. It has the characteristic five humps. The guide says it has been "... wrongly placed in Eriophora and represents an un-named genus ..." I suspect one of the three spiders I put in my post might be this spider too.
