Spring queens of Bombus cryptarum and B. magnus from 2 localities in Brandenburg/Germany and Scotland/United Kingdom respectively were determined by morphological characteristics. The lateral border of the collare at the border of the pronotallobus or at the episternum proved to be an especially useful character. Artificial colonies were reared from safely(More)
Sixty-six yeast strains isolated from the nectar of various plant species in Central Europe were characterized by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA PCR (RAPD-PCR) and by sequencing of the variable D1/D2 domain of large-subunit (26S) rDNA. The usefulness of both methods for the determination and comparison of unknown ascomycetous and basidiomycetous yeast(More)
The labial gland secretions from males of the bumblebee Bombus (Separatobombus) griseocollis De Geer, a bumblebee exhibiting perching behaviour, were analysed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) in the electron impact and positive ion chemical ionization mode. The major compound of the complex mixture of alkenols, acetates, hydrocarbons, wax(More)
The labial gland secretions from males of the North American bumblebees Bombus morrisoni Cresson and B. rufocinctus Cresson were analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. In both species, 3,7,11,15-tetramethyl-2,6,10,14-hexadecatetraenyl acetate was found as the major compound of a complex mixture of alkenols, acetates, hydrocarbons, and wax-type(More)
A novel asexual ascomycetous yeast, Candida kunwiensis (SG99-26T = KCTC 17041T = CBS 9067T), was isolated from sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) flowers in Korea and from the body surface of pollinating bumblebees in Germany. Comparative analysis of the D1/D2 domain of 26S rDNA of all available sequences for ascomycetous yeasts showed that the novel species(More)
