First contribution to the bionomics of the pollen wasp Celonites fischeri Spinola, 1838 (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Masarinae) in Cyprus In memory of Friedrich W. Gess
TLDR
Females perform a pollen collecting strategy hitherto unknown in pollen wasps; they ingest pollen from fresh anthers of Echium flowers that have just started to open by forcing their head into the only slightly opened corolla.
Flower associations and nesting of the pollen wasp Quartinia major Kohl , 1898 ( Hymenoptera , Vespidae , Masarinae ) in Morocco
Females of Quartinia major Kohl were observed to visit flowers of Pulicaria mauritanica Batt., Cladanthus arabicus (L.) Cass. and Asteriscus graveolens (Forssk.) Less., (all Asteroideae Asteraceae)
The origin and evolution of pollen transport in bees (Hymenoptera: Anthophila)
TLDR
A new hypothesis is proposed that pollen transport arose from adult pollen-feeding behavior and that internal transport of pollen is ancestral in bees, and represents the first in-depth hypothesis to explain how external transport of moistened pollen could have evolved.
