@MichaelMulvaney could you help with this ID at all?

Have been away chasing gang-gangs on the southern highlands but according to find a spider guide -Morebilus is a flattened spider like Hemicloea but differs in having shorter spinnerets that are not visible from above. I can see spinnerets in your sighting
