It might be a Grass Spider. This is the time of year when the begin to be found indoors and in big funnel-type webs outdoors. They tend to hide quickly if a flashlight is aimed at them. They have webs that are low-tension (bugs can’t jump off) and slippery instead of sticky. The spiders move incredibly swiftly to grab prey. They’re harmless. My dad has one is his basement that has lived at least 2 years and has a big elaborate web of tunnels.
