Abstract

Male Euglossa imperialis (Apidae, Euglossini) were marked after capture at cineole, a compound in orchid floral fragrances. Recaptures revealed that a large number of males may be available for pollination of a given orchid and that individual bees may remain at one locality throughout a morning and may be recapturable at that site over a period of several days.
