Abstract

More than 400 host records are summarized for 28 Nearctic species of Pompilini in the genera Sericopompilus, Episyron, Tachypompilus, Anoplius, Pompilus, and Aporinellus. Most of the records are based upon specimens collected at Presque Isle State Park, Pennsylvania. Fifty new host species are listed for 20 of the spider-wasp species. New host families are introduced for Anoplius carolinus, A. rectangularis, A. splendens, and A. tenebrosus. Pertinent notes on the nesting behavior of some of the species are included. Host selection among the species, size relationships of wasps and prey, stages and sexes of the spiders, and amputation of the spider's legs are discussed.
