New observations on the pollination of Ophrys L. (Orchidaceae)



New observations on the pollination of Ophrys L. (Orchidaceae)



Zoon (Suppl. 1): 9 - 13



Observations on Ophrys orchids in Majorca and Languedoc showed that regular pollination was effected by males of certain aculeate Hymenoptera: Campsoscolia, Gorytes, Colletes, Andrena, Eucera, Tetralonia, Melecta. The insects, sexually excited by odours from the labella, alighted on the flowers and, guided by the superficial labellum structures, attempted copulation. Pollination by certain scarabaeid Coleoptera also occurred.A.
