Psilochorus male found under the eaves of a public restroom near the Creekview Terrace parking lot. After photographing the spider I brought it home and identified it using:

Slowik, J. 2009. A review of the cellar spider genus Psilochorus Simon 1893 in America north of Mexico (Araneae: Pholcidae). Zootaxa 2144: 1-53.

Identifying features included the shape and placement of the cheliceral spurs and details of the pedipalps. The habitat was chaparral with scattered groves of Coast Live Oak.
