I don't even know what Order this thing belongs too, it's one of the most bizarre insects I've ever seen. There were a buttload of what looked like silk threads sprouting from its butt. Any help identifying it would be appreciated.

At first I thought this was a violin spider, but the speckled pattern on the abdomen makes me second-guess myself, since usually violin spiders have plain colored abdomens. It was also just slightly larger than violin spiders usually are. Any help would be nice!
