Flower visitation of Passiflora apetala, P. auriculata and P. holosericea (Passifloraceae) by Pepsis aquila (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae)
AbstractPepsis aquila (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae) is reported as an assiduous flower visitor and possible pollinator of Passiflora apetala, P. auriculata and P. holosericea in Costa Rica. The vertex and scutellum of P. aquila becomes abundantly covered with pollen while collecting the nectar from the cup nectaries of Passiflora. The Passiflora visited by P. aquila share some floral characteristics with previously reported plants pollinated by pompilids in Africa.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
