Please help identify?
Overall body length: 3.50mm. First glance I thought it was a weevil. Unusual characteristics, in that it behaved more like a spider than a beetle.

Help much appreciated

How wonderful to be helped in this way. It does make sense now, having read more about them. I simply wasn't aware of this bug's juvenile stages - am now! Can't wait to tell the kids about this process of I-spot in the morning. Brilliant. Thanks Grant.
