Let \(Y\) and \({\hat {Y}}\) be the reflected processes from bottom and from above, respectively, of a Lévy process without positive jumps and having neither a pure drift nor the negative of a subordinator. The theorem of M. R. Pistorius [J. Theor. Probab. 17, No. 1, 183–220 (2004; Zbl 1049.60042)] gives the \(q\)-resolvent densities of \(Y\) and \({\hat {Y}} \) killed on exiting interval \([0,a]\). In the present paper, this result is re-established by direct excursion theory calculation.
