Kleptoparasitic behaviour has been noted in four genera of Sphaeroceridae and one species of sarcophagid, Ravinia derelicta (Walker), described by Sivinski (1983) as a facultative kleptoparasite in scarab dung balls.
The patch attracted large numbers of potential prey for the spiders: bumblebees, butterflies of several species, sarcophagid and tachinid flies, and much smaller numbers of several other insect groups.
Prey recorded in these censuses weighed ~ 25 mg or more (bumblebees, butterflies, large sarcophagid and syrphid flies), since earlier work demonstrated that adult female Misumena cannot maintain their body mass on prey much smaller than these insects (Morse 1979) and that they do not choose among prey in the > 25 mg range.
This nest also had evidence of occupancy two other insects; a sarcophagid puparium was found in the innermost cell, which had also been invaded by ants at some time after the nest was completed.
