  • Abstract.We present a survey of moth pollination in woody species of the Cerrado of Central Brazil. Although with the exception of Roupalamontana (which has simple polysepalous flowers arranged in dense cymes) all moth pollinated species in this community have tubular flowers, or a pseudo-tube formed from a single folded petal in Qualeagrandiflora, settling moth flowers (tube less than 15 mm) vs. hawkmoth flowers (tube more than 50 mm) are markedly different in size. Moths visit some 20 woody… CONTINUE READING
