Syst. Zool. 26:32-56.-The allodapine bees constitute a part of the tribe Ceratinini. The immature stages have evolved a variety of adaptations to life in a common burrow instead of each isolated in its separate cell. This is a unique environment for bee larvae. These adaptations, which result in greater… CONTINUE READING
