Um I probably wouldn’t pick it up this looks like it may be a Brown Recluse ( Loxosceles reclusa), but the abdomen is a just a bit too skinny.

Hi, given the location this is most likely a Mediterranean Recluse (Loxosceles rufescens). I can’t rule out Brown Recluse (L. reclusa), or Chilean Recluse (L. laeta) from an image like this though. Brown Recluse would be more common to the north, and Chilean Recluse has been found in Polk Co.
