skunk cabbage pollinators in the UK
I am located in Oregon, USA, and recently learned that most western skunk cabbage plants (our native species that is invasive in the UK) are pollinated by rove beetles (Family: Staphylinidae) in the genus Pelecomalium. I found bunches of these beetles in the flowers of skunk cabbages here in Oregon this past weekend. Would anyone be willing to look to see if these beetles are present on skunk cabbage flowers in the UK?
I really appreciate any help you could offer!
