We apply insights from the burgeoning literature on pre-entry ecologies to make sense of empirical anomalies in tests of density delay theory. Using logical formalization, we synthesize arguments of both theory fragments into a single, logically sound framework. Our results suggest that atypical patterns of density delay may occur in populations that are not yet fully legitimized and may possibly relate to the number of organizers concurrently present in the pre-entry stages.
