Visitation of a specialist pollen feeder Althaeus hibisci Olivier (Coleoptera : Bruchidae) to flowers of Hibiscus moscheutos L. (Malvaceae)



Visitation of a specialist pollen feeder Althaeus hibisci Olivier (Coleoptera : Bruchidae) to flowers of Hibiscus moscheutos L. (Malvaceae)



Journal of the Torrey Botanical Society 132(2): 197-203



We investigated visitation of a bruchid seed beetle, Althaeus hibisci Olivier, to flowers of Hibiscus moscheutos L. (Malvaceae) under natural conditions. We examined movement of the beetle among flowers that were in different developmental stages, the correlation between corolla size and pollen production, and the correlation between beetle density and corolla size. Beetles moved diurnally from wilted Hibiscus moscheutos flowers that had opened on the previous day to newly open flowers.
