Hacklemesh Weaver Spider

Hi Cheyanne,
We are continuing to research this and we have requested assistance.  Could you please provide additional information?  How large was the spider?  Where exactly was it found?  Any other helpful information is appreciated.
Thanks.

Pretty sure this is a specimen of a hacklemesh weaver known as Metaltella simoni:

Please suggest that the person submit their image to Spiders.us (not sure how exactly to do that, sorry).
