Spider Hunting Wasp Arachnospila species

The Spider Hunting Wasp below is typical for most of the Spider Hunting Wasps in the Benelux: it is black with red parts on the abdomen. The specimen below was hard to photograph, for it didn't sit still for a moment. It is a member of the Arachnospila genus. It would have been possible to name even the species if we would know what spiders it was hunting for. But even though we watched it for a while, we never saw its prey.
