Hi, this looks like a male Metaltella simoni Hacklemesh Weaver. 🙂

Yes, I am certain this is not a Recluse (Loxosceles sp.) of any kind. Like most spiders your spider has venom but is unlikely to bite except in self defense and is not considered to be of medical significance to people – everyone’s immune system is different though.
