Habronattus
Another Habronattus. Notice the third leg is longer than the fourth, a good way to tell this genus.

 
Third leg
They often seem to keep the third leg folded tightly between the cephalothorax and abdomen. I notice this in the photos, but wanted someone more experienced to confirm.

That's a good way to check. You'll find that they're fairly distinctive.
