Information is presented on the nesting behavior of Philanthus multimaculatus Cameron including dimensions and design of the burrows, prey species taken, the manner in which prey-laden females approached the nest entrance and their response to parasitic satellite flies. Their distinctive approach flight supports the hypothesis that selection exerted by satellite flies has favored divergence in approach patterns among digger wasps which nest in mixed-species aggregations.
