|Neoscona adianta from Belgium|
E. Simon, 1864
Neoscona is a genus of spider in the family Araneidae (araneids) with a mostly pantropical distribution. One species, N. adianta, has a palearctic distribution, and several species occur in North America.
Neoscona was first separated from other araneids in the now obsolete genus Epeira by Eugène Simon in 1864, initially only as a group rather than a genus. The name Neoscona was derived from νέω, spin, and σχοῐνος, reed or rush.
