Abstract: The emerging of an acrocerid fly from an adult female of the wolf spider Pardosa alacris (C.L. Koch, 1833) was observed near Karlsruhe (Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Germany). This record supports previous results suggesting that acrocerids infect the spider's body, and not the egg sac. A short review of the life history of acrocerids and the development of their larvae is provided, casting doubt on the infection of spider cocoons by these parasitoids
