From Rod Crawford:
I'd say Titanoeca nigrella. Probably an adult female, if size is correct. Not a plectreurid: Legs too thick to be a Kibramoa, and wrong color for Plectreurys. The web silk looks cribellate and you can just about make out a calamistrum in the side view with the egg sac.

Velvety black and red spider
I'm not sure. It's a beauty though.

I'm keeping Plectreuridae in mind at this point, but there are several that look like this. The problem I'm having right now is that your specimen has such thick, hairy legs. I'm having trouble matching them up to the images in the guide.

Another that looks similar

 
Tough ID
I'm having the same problem. I saw several Kukulcania that look similar.
