It isn't obvious in these photo's, but this looks like a small wishbone spider to the naked eye. The hair on the leg joints near the body stand out in natural light, like the smooth joints on wishbone spiders.
Separating out Gnaphosidae spiders photographically is nearly impossible; even for arachnologists.
