The long chelicerae and fangs make me think of a woodlouse hunter, but the abdomen is much darker than one’s I’ve seen before.

Very harmless! If your basement is damp in any areas, isopods can be attracted to the moisture, and where isopods go so too will their hunters.

Mostly harmless. Like most spiders they have venom and could bite in self defense but are not considered to be of medical significance – everyone’s immune system is different though. Edit: and yes, this is Dysdera crocata, filed. 🙂
