  Comment: Unresolved secondary homonymy is shown by Platnick (2012, online World Spider Catalog v12.5), where both Araneus bipunctatus (Thorell, 1898) and Araneus bipunctatus Franganillo, 1931 are listed as valid species. The latter is a junior secondary homonym and includes the comment 'if this species is ever recognized, a replacement name will be needed'
