Nesting biology of Centris (Centris) aenea Lepeletier (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Centridini)
TLDR
Nesting activity of Centris aenea Lepeletier, 1841 was studied in two Brazilian habitats, Caatinga and Cerrado, and nests were excavated in the ground and did not tend to be aggregated together at the two sites, but at Palmeiras, nests were in a large aggregation. Expand
Biological notes on Centris (Trachina) perforator with a comparative analysis of the species with ground-nesting habits of the genus (Apidae: Centridini)
TLDR
Information is presented for the first time on nesting site, the architecture of nests, sex ration, and development of Centris (Trachina) perforator, which is protandric with adults emerging between 48‒83 days. Expand
Nesting biology of Centris (Paracentris) xanthomelaena (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Centridini)
TLDR
This unprecedented study described this species’ nesting biology and other features in Brazil’s Caatinga biome in an unprecedented study. Expand
Nesting ecology of the oil-collecting bee Centris (Melacentris) conspersa Mocsáry and its potential association with the cleptoparasite Cyphomelissa diabolica Friese (Apidae: Centridini, Ericrocidini)
TLDR
The nesting ecology of Centris (Melacentris) conspersa in two islands in the Atlantic Forest domain, Southeastern Brazil is studied, indicating that this species is likely to be univoltine and classified as an oligolectic bee species concerning both pollen and oil collection. Expand
Vogel’s great legacy: The oil flower and oil-collecting bee syndrome
TLDR
The story of the oil flower pollination system focusing primarily on oil bees is brought up to date and increased knowledge about the numbers of plants and bees partnering in this syndrome is pointed out. Expand
Bees as hosts of mutillid wasps in the Neotropical region (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Mutillidae)
TLDR
A review of bee species used as hosts of mutillid wasps in the Neotropical region is presented andCorrelations between host nesting habits and female mutillids morphology are discussed. Expand
Review of bees as guests in termite nests, with a new record of the communal bee, Gaesochira obscura (Smith, 1879) (Hymenoptera, Apidae), in nests of Anoplotermes banksi Emerson, 1925 (Isoptera, Termitidae, Apicotermitinae)
TLDR
This study provides a review of published records of bees as guests in termite nests, and describes the aggregation of nests of Gaesochira obscura within one nest of Anoplotermes banksi in Brazilian Amazonia. Expand
Nesting biology and behavioural ecology of the solitary bee Monoeca haemorrhoidalis (Smith) and its cleptoparasite Protosiris gigas Melo (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Tapinotaspidini; Osirini)
TLDR
During the nest construction activities, 27 insect species were observed at the nesting sites and the cleptoparasitic bee Protosiris gigas was one of the main causes of M. haemorrhoidalis mortality. Expand
Nesting biology, seasonality, and flower hosts of Epicharis nigrita (Friese, 1900) (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Centridini), with a comparative analysis for the genus
TLDR
Nesting biology and foraging behaviour of Epicharis nigrita were studied in a cerrado ecosystem in São Paulo State, Brazil and the biology of E. Nigrita is compared to that of other species in the genus. Expand
