The life cycle and aspects of the social organization ofExoneura bicolor are described for the first time. The population studied was univoltine, with egg production occuring from late winter through to early summer. Throughout the year most nests are occupied by more than one female, and most new nests are initiated by groups of up to 6 cofoundresses. Reproductive differentiation between nestmates is very pronounced during winter, with only one or two egg-layers in each nest. These females… CONTINUE READING
