A tan spider with very long forelegs. From the tip of a leg to the end of its abdomen, it was almost 1 inch long. The tips of the legs are black and the same applies to the chelicerae. Its bite is venomous and purportedly "medically significant".
The last photo was taken with flash to show the shiny/smooth aspect of the sternum, which is a shade darker than the rest of its body. This is either C. inclusum (native) or C. mildei (introduced).
