Two orchids attract different pollinators with the same floral odour compound: ecological and evolutionary implications

Schiestl, Florian; Peakall, Rodney

Description

1. The sexually deceptive orchids Chiloglottis trapeziformis Fitzg. and Chiloglottis valida D.L. Jones are pollinated by the thynnine wasps Neozeleboria cryptoides (Smith) and Neozeleboria monticola Turner, respectively, during attempted mating with the flower labellum.
