This is a nocturnal hunting spider (does not build a web for snaring prey) in the genus Selenops, commonly called a Flattie, and here is a BugGuide image that looks very similar. According to BugGuide: “This genus is found throughout the tropics and subtropics worldwide and can be found in southern parts of the U.S. ” This shy group of Spiders is not a threat to humans.
