Contrasting pollination modes in three species of Licuala (Arecaceae: Coryphoideae)


Contrasting pollination modes in three species of Licuala (Arecaceae: Coryphoideae)



Telopea 10(1): 207-223



ISSN/ISBN: 0312-9764

The pollination modes of Licuala spinosa, L. distans and L. peltata were studied in Peninsular Thailand. The differences in flowering behaviour and mechanisms that promote pollination are described. The pollen counts and frequent visits of calliphorid flies and halictid bees suggest that these are the most likely pollinators in L. spinosa followed by eumenid wasps and tachinid flies. Species of Trigona bees collected in the flowers of L. distans and L. peltata had high pollen loads.
