Cerceris californica Cresson  predation upon Acmaeodera maculifera Horn, 1894 

More recently a specimen of Cerceris californica  was collected carrying a specimen of Acmaeodera maculifera Horn  back to its ground nest at: 5.5 miles E of Three Rivers, Otero County, New Mexico, IX­ 25­1999. This may be the first record of any species of Cerceris  preying upon A. maculifera  . The voucher specimens of both the Cerceris  and Acmaeodera  are in my collection ( JJMD), both mounted on the same pin.
