Hi Tanya,
We sought out Eric Eaton for advice. Here is what he believes: “Pretty sure this spider is a Filistatid, family Filistatidae, probably Kukulcania. There are some nice images on bugguide you can compare to. I can’t see images on my WebTV that well, actually. Eric ” These are commonly called Crevice Weaving Spiders.
