Five nests of Mimesa lutaria (Fabricius) were excavated and studied at Cranberry Lake, S1. Lawrence County, NY. The nests were shallower than those of other species previously studied, yet the tumuli were large and conspicuous. An average of about 11 adult and nymphal cicadellids were stored in a cell, except for one cell that held five Delphacodes sp. (Delphacidae).
