Locality and nesting site

Observations were carried out during 2012 on March 11th and November 10th in the Karadya Bioreserve (25°52.233'S, 53°58.167'W), near Andresito, Misiones province, Argentina (Fig. 24). The locality is included in the Upper Paraná Atlantic Forest Region. The climate is warm subtropical, without a dry season, MAT around 20° C and a MAP around 2000 mm (Servicio Meteorológico Nacional, 2012). During March, 11th, males of Ptiloglossa matutina were collected, probably before their emergence, inside tunnels exposed in a soil vertical section. On November 10th, one nest was excavated in a patch of lateritic soil, altered by human activities, containing abundant roots, litter, and some rocks.

Daily activity

The nest was excavated at midday and the female was found inside the main tunnel. Some weeks ago, similar nests were observed with the entrance open and females flying close to them after 06:00 pm (Julián Baigorria, pers. comm.).

Description of the nest

The entrance was circular, 0.7 cm in diameter, without tumulus, and closed by a soil plug (Fig. 25). The main tunnel was circular in cross section, 25 cm long, nearly straight and slightly inclined downwards (Figs 21 and 26). It was 0.6–0.7 in maximum diameter. The nest contained four closed cells. One pair at a depth of 20 cm, were possibly connected to the main tunnel by a common tunnel filled with soil, 3 cm long. The other two cells, at a depth of 26 cm, were located at the other side of the main tunnel and also 3–4 cm of it (Fig. 26). The cells were vertical, rounded at the bottom and the neck was strongly curved (Figs 27 and 29). The vertical portion of the cell was 2.3 cm long and 1.3 cm in maximum diameter (n: 4). The neck was 0.8 cm in diameter (n: 4). The inner surface of cells and the neck were lined with a whitish semitransparent, cellophane-like material (Figs 27 and 28). Three cells contained eggs and one a young larva (Figs 27 and 28). The eggs, whitish, cylindrical and lightly curved, were 2.8 mm long and 0.4 mm wide. They laid on top of the yellow semiliquid provisions. The young larva was also whitish, curved, and almost submerged in the provisions. An earthen cell closure was not observed. Instead, a closure of white, cotton-like material that seems to be spirally arranged was observed (Fig. 28).
