Hi, this is a Crevice Weaver, (Kukulcania sp.). There are several very similar species in the genus out west. The males of this species are often mistaken for Recluse Loxosceles but are easily distinguished by the characteristically long appendages near the spider’s mouth (pedipalps). These are not considered to be of medical concern.
