Neoscona is a genus of spider in the family Araneidae with a mostly pantropical distribution. One species, N. adianta, has a palearctic distribution, and several species occur in North America.

There is a characteristic longitudinal groove on the carapace which separates all species of Neoscona from species of Araneus.[1]
