The identification was made by my colleague and pompilid wasp expert - Dr. Cecilia Waichert. The host spider is an unidentified species of Salticidae (jumping spider).

This is a spider wasp (Pompilidae) with a spider. She seems to have chewed off most of the spider's legs (not unusual), and will now drag it off to a burrow somewhere to lay her egg on. The egg will hatch and the larva will consume the spider.
