Size: approx. 1 inch
Can someone tell me what kind of spider this is? Thanks in advance.

Moved from Hacklemesh Weavers.

Reminds us of
the Amaurobiidae - Hacklemesh Weavers. Images can be found in the guide here. Jeff should have a more solid ID for you, but you can check out those images while you wait. Can you edit your submission and add an approximate size? Just head and body, not legs.

Updated spider size
Thanks John/Jane for the general ID. I have updated the size.
