VEREECKEN, N.J. & PATINY ,S.- Patrolling males of Andrena bicolor F. (Hymenoptera, Andrenidae) as pollinators ofOphrys massiliensis VIGLIONE & VELA. Observations carried out in situ indicate that Ophrys massiliensis is pollinated by patrolling males of Andrena (Euandrena) bicolor FABRICIUS in southern France. A distribution map and a phenogram of the pollinator are provided and this record is compared to previous pollina- tion records found in the literature. Resume. VEREECKEN, N.J. & PATINY, S…

This review summarises current knowledge, explores new hypotheses in the literature, and introduces some new approaches to understanding sexual deception from the perspective of the duped pollinator.

Deceptive Behavior in Plants. I. Pollination by Sexual Deception in Orchids: A Host-Parasite Perspective

It is argued that incorporating questions relevant to the field of animal-centered host–parasite interactions into investigations on the evolutionary ecology of orchid pollination by deception will provide important insights at both the proximate (or mechanistic) and at the ultimate (or evolutionary) levels.

The section Pseudophrys ( Ophrys , Orchidaceae) in the Iberian Peninsula: a morphometric and molecular analysis

Section Pseudophrys is a taxonomically critical species complex that has a history of circumscriptional uncertainty, suggesting the need for further evaluation. Its taxonomy in the Iberian Peninsula

Do changes in floral odor cause speciation in sexually deceptive orchids?

Speciation in this group of Ophrys orchids may be brought about by changes in pattern of alkenes, which lead to attraction of a different pollinator species and therefore reproductive isolation.

Molecular phylogenetics of the sexually deceptive orchid genus Ophrys (Orchidaceae) based on nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences.

It is hypothesized that the diversity in the genus Ophrys is the result of a recent radiation in this orchid lineage, and a well-resolved monophyletic group that contains the geographically widespread O. speculum, O. tenthredinifera, and the fusca-lutea lineage is proposed.
