The last days of rainfall usually occur in late December and the first rains fall sometime between the last week of April and the middle of May"
Life forms: orchid bees
Sites: 6
Sampling methods: line transect, baited, other traps
Sample size: 174
Years: 1979
Seasons: wet or monsoon
Nets or traps: 5
Sampling comments: "Cineole, eugenol, methyl cinnamate, benzyl acetate, and methyl salicylate were selected as the baits... 16-cm2 squares of heavy blotter paper were soaked in a compound and each square placed individually in a small plastic bag that was then knotted shut. At the census site, each of the five bags was pinned to a different tree trunk in shade - 1.5 m above the ground. The five trees were chosen so as to be about eight to 15 paces apart and arranged in a roughly straight line or shallow arc"
