Abstract

This paper describes an active nest of Bombus pullatus Franklin from Costa Rica that had a colony of leafcutter ants Acromyrmex octospinosus (Reich) build a fungus garden in the old abandoned cells of the bumble bee nest. Such associations between bumble bee and ant nests have not been reported previously.
