I thought recluse but it doesn’t have the fiddle as far as I can see.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 Tentatively this looks like Metaltella simoni, definitely not a Recluse (Loxosceles sp.).

I have 100s of these, maybe even more underneath my back door ramp. Leaves started to rot and the yard started to smell so I started cleaning them out and they would run EXTREMELY fast so I had a hard time catching a photo. Finally caught one and took some pictures.
