Jorogumo has a deep voice and in-game text refers to them as male. However, they have feminine mannerisms and a scene in Yo-kai Watch Busters shows Jorogumo as part of a Yo-kai Female Association along with female Yo-kai, which implies they're actually a male-to-female transgender. This likely derives from how the youkai they are based on is a female-only species.
Jorogumo takes their name from the youkai of the Nephila Clavata spider. Different from the tsuchigumo, they are female youkai that use their beauty to lure their prey, but revert to their monstrous spider form once they're in their clutches, and control hordes of smaller spiders to do their bidding.
