Abstract: The linear nests of S. canadensis show a succession of immatures (prepupae), and as expected females are early and males late. That nests differ in prepupal colour tint is, one might think, not so surprising as nests differ in the mix of prey on which the immatures have dined. Usually the sequence is of a single prepupal colour, consistent with a single diet and mother. However, in rare nests not only does prepupal colour change along the sequence but the sex order does at the same time ---consistent with the apparently single seamless nest being built by a succession of two mothers.
