While an arachnid, this actually is in the order Opiliones. While very close to spiders, they are not “true spiders”. The family would be Sclerosomatidae. The genus is probably Hadrobrunus. Opiliones are a very ancient evolutionary group and are actually thought to be more closely related to scorpions then “spiders”.

Wow! It’s really hard to find someone who can be more specific than order with Opiliones taxonomy!
