Nest sites, some with 200-400 nests, and nest architecture of the solitary wasp Cerceris halone are described. Behavior of Cerceris in stinging and transporting prey (the acorn weevil Curculio nasicus) is correlated with the wasp's clypeal and mandibular structure. Sizes of predator and prey are compared. Egg, larva, prepupa and cocoon are briefly described. Associated arthropods include a chrysidid wasp, certain sarcophagid flies, pompilid wasps, bees, ants and mites.
