It’s a Southern House Spider, Kukulcania hibernalis. I haven’t seen one yet, I didn’t know they hunt this way. He has his feet on the thick strands of the web. As soon as something touches it he’ll know about it. I have a different soecies, Black Lace Weavers that hunt like this using the holes in the foundation walls to hide their bodies.
