how big is it?
It really seems something like a black wolf spider (Lycosidae)... but it's very difficult with thiese pictures...
Or a Segestria.. but the abdomen is too short...
How it had the eyes? Two larger frontal eyes plus 6 little ones?
It could even be a Nemesia...
It's really difficult sorry...

from that picture you can´t tell anything about the spider. could be almost everything. Maybe it would be smart to google after Segestria florentina; Lycosa sp.; Nemesia sp. or even Cteniza sp.

Maybe it is a Amblyocarenum walckenaeri (=A. simile) male.

ok thanks for the replies. i didnt really get a look at the eyes the one in the pics had drowned overnight and wasnt easy to distinguish. i will try those searches to see. when i go back i will try to get better pics.
the size was between 1.5 inch and 2.5 inch legspan at a guess
