ID help
It's been more than 10 years since this was posted, but I am reasonably confident that this is Pholcus manueli.

Kentucky is within the known range of this somewhat common species of pholcus. It does indeed differ with Pholcus phalangioides, with manueli having the two elongated markings above the eyes which are evident in your picture.

Hope this helps!

Moved from Spiders.

Cellar Spider?
Maybe in the Family Pholcidae?

This appears to be a gravid (pregnant) Pholcid. I'm unsure of the exact genus/species, but I would say that a cellar spider (P. phalangioides) is a good ID!
