dc.descriptionNests ( n=60 ) of a solitary mud-daubing wasp, Brachymenes dyscherus were conected at Fazenda Santa Carlota, Cajuru, Sao Paulo, Brazil ín 1995 and 1996 . The multi-celled mud nests were constructed on the interior walls of abandoned houses in dry and shaded places. Nests were composed of 1 to 4 layers with cens constructed in two paralle! series. The number of cens per nest ranged from 3 to 62. Cells containing prey (larvae of Lepidoptera) numbered fram 4 to 29. B. dyscherus is a uniyoltíne species. Adults emerge from September to December, and nesting talces place at the beginning of the following year; however, the developmental period for some immatures with proloFlged diapause l3.Sted up to 596 days.

The total duration of immature stages n nests collected in 1996 was less for males than for females. The sex ratio for the total populatíon was 1 . 5 males: 1 female with males emerging earher than females. A life table was constructed, and details of lhe life cycle of the wasps and parasitoids are presented. The mos! common mOl1ality factors were either endogenous or due 10 Melittobia sp.
