Spider ID Inland Goa

Anybody help me out with an ID for this? Species preferably, but family would help.

It was guarding its substantial roadside web in forest in the foothills of the Ghats at the beginning of February. The web appeared to be linked by a 'tripwire' to another adjacent web.

Can't be more specific than to say that it looks like a member of the Sparassidae or 'Hunstman' group.

Hippasa species may be worth checking out.
