Eriophora ravilla (Tropical Orbweaver)

While spider hunting in my yard tonight, I was surprised to find this penultimate male Eriophora ravilla, a species that is normally found in the Gulf states. (This is the first time I have seen one in South Carolina.)
@Salmon It's not that much colder here than the Gulf states (rarely gets below freezing) -- it could just be the species spreading on its own or through commerce.
