Abstract

This study provides a morphometric analysis of a new morphotype belonging to the subgenus Trigona s. str. collected in Colombia. This morphotype is similar in external morphology as to the T. fulviventris complex. We use a non-parametric multivariate approach to compare 40 characteristics from five species of bees from the subgenus Trigona s. str. Our results suggest that this morphotype is morphologically distinct from the other species used in this study, but in order to asses the real validity of this finding further data from molecular genetics and ecology are needed.
