Eckfeldapis electrapoides nov. gen. n.sp., a honey bee from the Middle Eocene of the Eckfelder Maar near Manderscheid/Eifel, Germany



Mainzer Naturwissenschaftliches Archiv 31(26): 177-199



A fossil honey bee was found in sediment dating from the middle Eocene epoch of the Tertiary Period (50 million years ago). The bee, Eckfeldapis electrapoides n.gen., n.sp., is described; it is the oldest known representative of the family Apidae, subfamily Apinae. It is more apomorphic than the genus Electrapis, resembling the true honey bees of the genus Apis.
