Molecular Phylogenetics of the Exoneurine AUodapine Bees Reveal an Ancient and Puzzling Dispersal from Africa to Australia

Abstract

— Previous phylogenetic studies of the bee tribe Allodapini suggested a puzzling biogeographic problem: one of the key basal divergences involved separation of the southern African and southern Australian clades at a very early stage in allodapine evolution, but no taxa occur in the Palaearctic or Asian regions that might suggest a Laurasian dispersal route… (More)
