Hi. A really cool spider,not sure what name you may call these, they are known as tree trunk spiders or two tail spiders, Family Hersiliidae, Hersilia genus. Not a big spider, very harmless. I think yours is a young male.
We don’t have these in the Americas outside the pet trade and museums.
These guys are so well camouflaged on trees they usually get overlooked, looking right at them.
A listing of possible species, look for regions near you:

Nice find.
