Further substructuring of the principal component plots could not initially be derived but only by introducing local labelling did it reveal six main morphoclusters. We apply geographically based common epithets to the morphoclusters and designate them as: as “Northern cerana”, “Himalayan cerana” “Indian plains… CONTINUE READING
