A new interpretation of fossil social bees from the Dominican Republic



A new interpretation of fossil social bees from the Dominican Republic



Sociobiology, 71: 37-45



About 97 new specimens of the Oligocene meliponine bee from Dominican amber, Trigona dominicana (and possibly its close relatives), were examined. The morphological data suggest that, contrary to earlier reports, it is not closely related to African species of the subgenus Hypotrigona. It resembles the subgenus Plebeia but differs from modern forms of that subgenus in some of its principal characters.
