Tetragnatha at Walden Lake

Typically I see T. elongata - but a few days ago I saw what appears to be Tetragnatha - with shorter legs and with some sort of parasitoid larva.  Here are examples of a typical T. elongata.






 Here is a new one - possibly Tetragnatha obtusa (Thanks to Peter Jaeger for id).  Note the larvae where the abdomen joins the cephalothorax
