My initial guess would be a female black widow spider based on the markings.

Yes, my first thought was, “Brown Widow.” The orange hourglass seems to be fairly consistent in color within the species, Latrodectus geometricus. And,in this case, there is the easy clue that the Brown Widow is brown/blackish instead of totally black.
