The evolution of obligate pollination mutualisms: senita cactus and senita moth
We report a new obligate pollination mu- tualism involving the senita cactus, Lophocereus schottii (Cactaceae, Pachyceereae), and the senita moth, Upiga virescens (Pyralidae, Glaphyriinae) in the Sonoran De- sert and ...
Mutualistic interactions between Upiga virescens (Pyralidae), a pollinating seed-consumer, and Lophocereus schottii (Cactaceae)
(Ecological Society of America, 1999)
Pollinating seed-consuming interactions are rare, but include fig–fig wasp and yucca–yucca moth interactions, both of which are thought to be coevolved. Conditions favoring such mutualisms are poorly known but likely ...
