  • it was observed that interspecific copula resulted in severe injury to the ceraqueen. After instrumental insemination of both melli/era and cerana queens with heterospecific semen, normal fertilization and cleavage of the eggs were observed. During the blastula stage, however, development stopped and finally ended in a complete breakdown. These observations are discussed from the point of view of the evolution of the two aforementioned
