Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 You have a male Southern House Spider (Kukulcania hibernalis). They often get mistaken for Brown Recluse but are not considered to be of medical significance. Those super long pedipalps (leg-like appendages near the spider’s mouth) is an easy way to tell the two apart. They’re much shorter on a Recluse.
