Title: LAU stand, block 154, 4.8 mm cavities. In cavity 6 up a small Osmia lignaria nest, new in June, had been replaced in August by a Potter (probably S. cristatus). The Potter failed but the outer resin-using Megachile campanulae apparently emerged next Spring.

Abstract: Although failure to emerge can be recognized by hard evidence successful emergence must, strictly speaking, always be assumed because there are many at least conceivable ways in which the contents of a nest might disappear between successive recordings. However, very many observations have never supported any speculation that apparent emergence is anything other than real emergence. From the observations on this cavity it does seems most reasonable to assume that the S. cristatus did remove the O. lignaria nest (and also that the resin nest was reoccupied in 2007 by M. campanulae after the 2006 nest had been completely vacated).
