It may be a female trapdoor spider but it is hard to tell with only 1 pic angle

You didn’t give your location? at a glance to me it looks like a White tailed spider? arachnids are not really my field of interest, hopefully you kept and preserved it or have better pics of it then Google White tailed spider.

The White tailed spider is a nasty bit of work and has been blamed for necrotising arachnidism and I can assure you it is a nasty condition that put me out of action for 18 months or so, although I did not positively identify it as a White tailed spider that bit me the chances are it was, also some of the wolf spider species have been blamed also.

The White tailed spider loves the indoors especially during the cooler months, anyway I am sure there will be someone out there that can positively identify it for you, good luck.

Tarantulas come to my mind...unless we really see the spider.
