A rescue spider

I found this spider in the basement bathroom a few months ago and thought it was a Steatoda grossa. Now I am thinking maybe Callobius severus. I don't think it is a woodlouse (Dysdera crocata). What do you all think it is? Is now twice as big as when I rescued it and eats well.

      Definitely not a steatoda. It looks like Dysdera crocata though.

      @NYAN When I looked at pictures of Dysdera crocata on the internet, none of them looked like this one. It also is acting like a trap door spider by staying under the substrate and has several different entrances to it's borrow.

      Dysdera crocata tend to be orange or red in color with a cream colored abdomen and they have large chelicerae. I honestly can’t tell the color but the body shape reminds me of them.

      @BCspiderman7 Callobius severus seems like a good possibility. (It's not Steatoda or Dysdera crocata.)
