Nidificação de Euglossa (Euglossa) melanotricha Moure (Hymenoptera: Apidae) no solo do cerrado

Abstract: Nesting of Euglossa (Euglossa) melanotricha Moure (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in the Ground of Cerrado ABSTRACT -Nests of euglossine bees are diffi cult to found in nature, with descriptions available for only 20% of known species. A nest of Euglossa (Euglossa) melanotricha Moure found inside a cavity in the ground at a Cerrado area in Uberlândia, Minas Gerais state, is described. Comparisons of nesting behavior and social structure with those reported for Euglossa (Euglossa) cordata (L.) and Euglossa (Euglossa) tow… Show more

“…A maior abundância de espécies como A. mellifera e T. spinipes tem sido registrada em diversos outros trabalhos (Martins 1994;Carvalho & Bego 1996;Aguiar & Martins 1997;Comunidade de abelhas (Hymenoptera, Apoidea) (Camargo & Mazucato 1984;Bortoli & Laroca 1990Silveira & Campos 1995, entre outros), o que dificulta a avaliação da apifauna local e comparação com resultados de outros estudos. Euglossa melanotricha, por sua vez, é uma espécie comum do Cerrado e áreas abertas que nidifica no solo (Augusto & Garófalo 2007). A estabilidade atingida pela curva do coletor (Fig.…”

“…There is some evidence in the literature to support such claims. For example, the females of all Euglossini species collected can build their nests on preexisting cavities in the ground, including the savanna soil (Zucchi et al 1969, Augusto & Garófalo 2007). These bees can also occupy empty termites and ant nests (Zucchi et al 1969 conditions are common in grass-woody savanna and that preferences for more open areas were previously reported, one can propose that this vegetation type is a potential adequate environment to the nesting behavior of the most abundant Euglossini bees in the studied region, although such proposition calls for additional empirical verification (Rebêlo & Garófalo 1997, Silveira et al 2015, Juncá et al 2005.…”

“…Females of E. melanotricha (Moure) usually construct their nests in ground holes, cavities in buildings or mounds (Sakagami et al 1967, Augusto & Garófalo 2007. Although the nesting behavior of females is well-known, the behavior of the males is rarely described.…”
