The first hive entrance is surrounded by the sticky red seeds of the Cadagi tree (Eucalyptus torelliana).
THE first instance of `mellitochory' -- seed dispersal by bees -- has been observed between the stingless bee, Trigona carbonaria, and the Cadagi tree, Eucalyptus torelliana.
Further research showed that when the bees entered Cadagi gumnuts to collect resin droplets for nest building, they often emerged carrying resin in their `corbiculae' (pollen baskets), with one or two seeds attached.
carbonaria is an effective dispersal agent for Cadagi seeds.
