Does any know of other hosts than Apis mellifera Linnaeus for the Beelouse, Braula coeca Nitzsch?

The Manual of Nearctic Diptera only mentions 'honeybees', without citing the scientific name of the honeybee.

I don't know of any references, but I think it is probable that at least one of the eight Braula or Megabraula species occurs on Apis cerana which is also a domesticated species of honeybee. There are other undomesticated Apis species, and Braula must have evolved in undomesticated bees, so I think they will be found in those too.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
