It might be a wandering spider (family Ctenidae; see https://as1.ftcdn.net/jpg/01/90/70/50/500_F_190705016_IOn0NwSk0ewrPSBGLGXdTGfff4vsDJGM.jpg for an example), but I really would like to see its eye pattern as there are some wolf and fishing spiders having a similar appearance to ctenids.

Here is a closer view. I don't know if the eyes show up well enough though.

The eyes do look more like those of a ctenid than any of the other possibilities.

Thanks very much again.
