### Description

We study a class of realizations of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard
Model that is motivated by dark matter and Higgs data, and in which the lightest
pseudoscalar Higgs boson mass is smaller than twice the bottom quark mass and
greater than twice the tau lepton mass. In such scenarios, the lightest
pseudoscalar Higgs boson can be copiously produced at the LHC from the decay of
heavier superpartners and will dominantly further
decay into a pair of tau leptons that
is generally boosted. We make use of a boosted object tagging technique designed
to tag such a ditau jet, and estimate the sensitivity of the LHC to the
considered supersymmetric scenarios with 20 to 50~fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton
collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13~TeV.
