Trollius europaeus

Hello

In would be grateful if someone could send me a pdf of this article, it's an important article for me as this is a rare flower in my county and we could do with some information on its pollinators.

Entwistle, P.F. 1995. Insects associated with Trollius europaeus L. flowers in Sutherland. Entomologist’s monthly Magazine 131: 137-138.

Thank you

Elisabeth

Re: Trollius europaeus

I can't help with the article, but I can inform you that the larvae of all 5 British species of the Anthomyiid genus Chiastocheta develop in Trollius (globeflower) heads.  So the adults may play a part in pollination.  The NBN Atlas shows records of two of these species by Entwistle in East Sutherland in the 1980s.

Thank you Phil. I have this information already.

Re: Trollius europaeus

Thanks very much Elisabeth - this article looks fascinating.   One of my aims next year is to get the first records of Chiastocheta in Lancashire - I've already had some tips on where Trollius is growing.
