I assume this is the same individual as in the other image? Zoropsis spinimana, mature male.

They are native to the Mediterranean and coastal countries of northern Africa. They’re not considered to be of medical significance and are relatively recently introduced to CA (mid 1990’s). I don’t really know how they’re affecting native species, controlling them is unnecessary according to this: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn74143.html

If you would like to release him I would let him go away from the perimeter of your home so that he doesn’t find his way back in, and in leaf litter or vegetation.
