Specific pollinator attraction and the diversification of sexually deceptive Chiloglottis (Orchidaceae)
Evidence indicates that sexually deceptive Chiloglottis R.Br. (Orchidaceae) taxa specifically attract their thynnine wasp (Tiphiidae) pollinators through the floral odour mimicry of female wasp sex pheromones. We use amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) to reconstruct the species-level phylogeny of Chiloglottis, make a preliminary evaluation of genetic distinc-tions between species, and compare the historical association among orchids and their pollinators using wasp sequence data...[Show more]
