Description:

small parasitoid wasp carrying freshly subdued spider. was seen perched on bindweed leaf on my allotment (shame on me for having bindweed in my garden I know!
I'm wondering if this could be a spider hunting wasp (Auplopus carbonarius) the nests of which I posted a picture of on Ispot back in April
