Abstract

Anterhynchium abdominale bengalense (Saussure) (Hymenoptera: Eumenidae) nested in a senescent mound of Odontotermes obesus (Rambur) (lsoptera: Macrotermitinae) in Punjab. The 1 to 11 scattered cells per nest radiated from the termite ventilation shafts. Cells were lined with resin, and in January contained diapausing mature larvae which had fed on caterpillars. Pupation occurred in June. Adults emerged in July and August and emitted a stinkbug-like cephalic odor when handled.
