A study of the nesting behavior of Miscophus (Nitelopterus) laticeps was undertaken at Montana de Oro State Park, San Luis Obispo County, California in 2010, 2011, and 2012 to clarify variation in previous reports on this species. Specific areas of study included (1) manner of prey transport, (2) presence or absence of temporary entrance closure, (3) manner of nest entry, (4) families of prey spiders, and (5) wasp's egg affixation site. New prey records, including two new families, were discovered as part of this study. The behavioral components of M. laticeps are discussed in relation to other North American congeners.
