Hi. One of my favorite spiders,a male huntsman spider, Heteropoda venatoria species.(brown huntsman)
Poor guy looks to have seen some combat what with missing leg segments and abdomen.
If this is alive,it won’t be for long.

These are a pantropical spider, found globally in tropic and ub tropic regions. Called cane spiders in Hawaii, other monikers are clock spider crab house spider.
US range is central Texas east to he Atlntic and up the coast into South Carolina.
Had an in tact one live in my room a couple months in Florida, named him Zeus.
Really very harmless:
