Abstract The consequences of the very short capture time for pi /sup -/ mesons in liquid hydrogen, recently measured by Fields, Yodh, Derrick, and Fetkovich, are discussed. It is pointed out that collisional de-excitation mechanisms, even including the Stark effect enhancement of capture, seem inadequate io explain the experiment. Alternative possibilities are discussed. (auth)
