To me, that abdomen tip looks like a male.

It looks like one of the most unrecognised Lauxaniidae: Cnemacantha muscaria (according to some now just a black species of Homoneura).

I can imagine that it is unrecognized as Lauxaniidae. Looks like this species is still unkown from the Netherlands, but given the occurrence in Western Europe, it can be expected sooner or later from the Netherlands!!??
