Title: Tetrastylis Ovalis: A Second Case Of Bat-pollinated Passionflower (passifloraceae)
Author: Buzato S.
Franco A.L.M.
Abstract: The floral biology of Tetrastylis ovalis and its pollination by bats was studied in southeastern Brazil. The flowers of T. ovalis seem more fitted to bat-pollination than those of Passiflora mucronata, the other known chiropterophilous passionflower. Two species of bats were observed visiting flowers of T. ovalis: the phyllostomids Glossophaga soricina and Rhinophylla pumilio. Due to the attributes of Tetrastylis, its presumed primitiveness and a better defined bat-pollination syndrome we suggest that chiropterophily evolved independently in the former genus and in Passiflora. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
