The genus Pedicularis manifests great variation in corolla morphology, including corolla tube length. Previous observations conducted during daytime have documented bumblebees to be important pollinators for shortand long-tubed Pedicularis species. However, the potential role of night-flying long-proboscid insects (moths) as selective agents for the evolution of corolla length has not been determined. Three Pedicularis species, Pedicularis densispica, Pedicularis gruinea, and Pedicularis… CONTINUE READING
