Caught a spider i'm unfamiliar with...I currently have several arachnids as pets (3 bark scorpions and a brown widow) but would like to positively identify this one so I better understand how to deal with it. Thanks in advance!

More info: Spider has a very well organized web and was caught in north Florida (Daytona Beach, specifically).
