It contained only 3 combs. The upper one had been built before the attack and consisted of small cells. The comb in the middle was built during the attack and at the inside consisted of large cells, out of which adulterina- .female. were hatching, at the outside it consisted of small cells, out of which adulterina .male. were hatching. The lower, abnormal comb, consisting of small cells, was probably built after the death of the old adulterina-.female. and after the flight of the young adulterina-.female. and -.male.
