BACKGROUND AND AIMS Vigna caracalla has the most complex flower among asymmetrical Papilionoideae. The objective of this study was to understand the relationships among floral characteristics, specialization, mating system and the role of floral visitors under different ecological contexts. METHODS Five populations were studied in north-western Argentina, from 700 to 1570 m a.s.l.
