Thread subject: :: Acrocerid pupa ?

I collected this 1 June 2020 from a marsh at Moelyci Farm, Tregarth, North Wales. The host is Tetragnatha extensa. Unfortunately I had pickled it before I noticed the parasite. I am suggesting Acroceridae because that is the only group I know that parasitises spiders.
