Hi, welcome to SpiderID. 🙂 Your Hacklemesh Weaver guess is good, it appears to be a Metaltella simoni and they are sometimes referred to as Hacklemesh Weavers due to their resemblance to spiders in the family Amaurobiidae (Hacklemesh Weavers), even though they are placed in a different family (currently Desidae).
