I think your identification is most likely correct. I don’t see the iridescent green chelacerae which might mean this is a female. The photo is fantastic, she looks quite menacing. The silver funnel web is pretty. She has her legs in the position described for the species. She might have a missing leg. Segestria florentina have six silk trip lines at the funnel entrance. The spider keeps six legs forward, one on each tripline to feel for vibrations. They eat cockroaches and that’s fantastic!
