Nursery pollination in Caryophyllaceae species by Hadena and Perizoma moths has been extensively described in the last few decades. Evidence across multiple pairs of species shows that such pollination systems constitute relatively specialized interactions, shifting between parasitism and mutualism depending on the presence of effective co-pollinators. In this work, we describe a new specific Silene-Hadena interaction, the Silene ciliata Hadena consparcatoides system. Although S. ciliata… CONTINUE READING
