I haven't seen a spider like this crawling around during daylight. Only noticed it because it was right beside my dog's paw.

Moved from Hacklemesh Weavers.

This is probably a hackledmesh weaver in the family Amaurobiidae, possibly genus Callobius. The webs they spin is not sticky but "fluffy," and charged with static electricity.
