My mom found this spider while folding some towels from the attic, it gave her quite the scare! she made me go through the towels twice until I found it. I wanted to let it go but I didn't put it outside because I figured if it's in my house, It's used to being there, so I let it go in basement where it is safe and conditions are similar to the attic. So if anyone can give me a name for what it is, that would be great!

The carapace appeared to have a white stripe going down it but doesn't show up in the picture.

looks like a good 'ole parson's spider, Herpyllus ecclesiasticus.
