Lipids secreted from the Dufour's glands of the bees Anthophora centriformis, Anthophora californica tarsata, Emphoropsis miserabilis, Megachile (Delomegachile) gemula, M. (Phaenosarus) fortis, M. (Argyropile) parallela, and M. (Melanosarus) xylocopoides primarily consist of short chain (C2-C20) fatty acid triglycerides. Nearly 95% of the triglycerides from Anthophora and Emphoropsis have one palmitoyl-, stearoyl- or arachidoyl moiety, plus two shorter acids (C2-C16). Virtually all… CONTINUE READING
