Hi guys,
Here are some shots of a Huntsman that had the tables turned by a Spider Hunter Wasp. She has dragged it back to her burrow and is taking it inside for later.

Spider Wasp paralyzes Huntsman Spider

Hi Trevor,
Thanks so much for sending us this wonderful documentation of an Australia Spider Wasp paralyzing a large Huntsman Spider.  We found some information on the Brisbane Insect Website indicating that this is a Spider Wasp in the genus
Fabriogenia.  It is also important to note that while this is being filed under Food Chain, the female Spider Wasp feeds on nectar and pollen and that the Huntsman Spider will provide nourishment for her brood.
