Relationship between Euglossa (Euglossella) mandibularis and Cyphomandra calycina


Ciencia e Cultura 41(9): 903-905
Relationship between Euglossa (Euglossella) mandibularis and Cyphomandra calycina
Males of E. mandibularis visit Cyphomandra calycina flowers to collect odoriferous compounds. These substances are extracted from the strongly developed connectives with the use of foreleg brushes. It is suggested that male bees are strongly attracted by flowers even before anthesis. They were frequently observed damaging the apex of mature blossoms and pushing the corolla lobes to force the flower open.
