Eufriesea zhangi sp. n. (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Euglossina), a new orchid bee from Brazil revealed by molecular and morphological characters

Abstract: Eufriesea zhangi Nemésio & Santos Júnior sp. n. is described from the 'Parque Nacional de Ubajara', state of Ceará, northeastern Brazil. This orchid-bee species is superficially similar to the blackish species belonging to the Eufriesea mussitans (Fabricius, 1787) species-group. Molecular and morphological (both external and genital) characters were used to demonstrate that Eufriesea zhangi sp. n. is distinct from morphologically similar Eufriesea nordestina (Moure, 1999) and Eufriesea auriceps (Friese, 1899).… Show more

“…Although many orchid-bee samplings have been carried out in Peru and around 10% of all valid orchid-bee species have Peru as their type locality (see Nemésio and Rasmussen, 2011), there are only four published surveys of orchid-bee fauna in Peruvian territory, all carried out in lowland areas in the Amazon Basin (Pearson and Dressler, 1985;Bembé, 2002;Rasmussen, 2009;Abrahamczyk et al, 2011).…”
