Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this guy hiding in our well. He was with at least one other, both the same size about an inch and a half big. There was what resembled a web close by. But it was very dense looking almost like what a catipillar would make. Found in northern New Jersey, anyone think they know what it could be?
