Hi,

today I was lucky to observe a spider wasp with its prey.
Is it possible to identify either the wasp or the spider?

Northwest-Germany Lower Saxony, Rastede, 0 m, 2019-07-18

Thanks in advance!
Thomas

My reaction for the spider is Drassodes, but I have nothing to back that up - it was just a feeling

I agree with Gnaphosidae so Drassodes is possible.

Thank you, John and Tony!
The wasp is Auplopus carbonarius, confirmed by a local Hymenoptera specialist.

have a good time

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
