Asagena sp. Maybe Asagena fulva. https://bugguide.net/node/view/439575 You only gave us one minute in the middle of the night before you went from ‘What is this’ to ‘Is it a new species!” 😉 It’s a really cool-looking spider. It’s in family Theridiidae, with the Widows. It looks quite dangerous, but isn’t. There are at least two possible species in genus Asagena that it could be. A. fulva has the closest markings and geographical population.
