Dipterocarpoid floral visitors, Dipterocarpus excepted, are pollen robbers: The geography and phylogeny of the distinctive dipterocarpoid androecium, its anthers of generically distinct form and usually with diverse connectival appendages, are fundamental to understanding dipterocarp pollination biology and breeding systems, provide the primary basis for generic diagnosis, and thereby give insight into pollinator co-evolution as the subfamily met new opportunities; yet they receive no mention.
