First record of the occurrence of Partamona ailyae Camargo (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Atlantic Forest
Keywords:DNA barcoding, COI and 12S haplotypes, gene variation, Geographic distribution, Meliponini.
AbstractThis is the first record of the stingless bee Partamona ailyae Camargo, 1980 in an area of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil. The morphological identification and COI and 12S sequences indicated that the samples collected in the Atlantic Forest and other areas of the range of distribution belong to the same biological species. The data revealed low intraspecific variation and high interspecific divergence, with no overlap of the taxa compared.
