This spider is in the family Corinnidae ( ant-mimic spiders) and the genus Castianeira - see http://www.flickr.com/photos/27493347@N03/4899638044/ for an example. Like the vast majority of spiders, they do have venom glands, but their bite is harmless to humans. You may want to review the 'sticky' note on spider bites at the top of this forum.
