Found tons of these in my friend’s basement and barn. I think it is a cellar spider but when I touched it it took off crawling. They were everywhere. What could cause the white coloration? And every one I tried to touch crawled away

Cellar Spider with Fungus Infection

Dear T. Arends,
This is a Cellar Spider and it has a lethal fungus infection.  If it was indeed alive and it crawled away, it is not long for this world.

    There’s one in my crawl space here in Michigan but it’s too big to be a cellar spider

    Is that fungus that is infecting them harmful to humans?
