Moved from Crab Spiders. This was tough. I wasn't 100% sure, but this is my best guess.

Black Crab spider
I think we are looking at either Coriarachne brunneipes or Bassaniana versicolor. A close-up of the hairs on the front of the spider's head can tell them apart. I'm leaning toward Coriarachne brunneipes.

 
Thank you Lynette!
I have added a close up of the head hairs on this spider. Hope they help! Thanks!
