CLOSED: Help with Spider ID

Pleasanton, CA

I am based out of Pleasanton, CA. Second one found on the wall at night. Rather large in size and quick. I am not sure of the species. Just need to make sure they are harmless or something to be worried about. Appreciate your thoughts..

The image is not clear enough for me to be confident, but I suspect that it is a male spider in the genus Titiotus (family Zoropsidae) - see for an example. They are quite similar in appearance to recluse spiders (Loxosceles spp.), but they have eight eyes whereas recluse spiders only have six. They are not dangerous to humans.
