A Report on Alternanthera Triandra Lam. Unifloral Rock Bee Honey from Ahmednagar (M.S.), India

Studies on pollen analysis of rock bee honey were undertaken during the winter season at Ahmednagar (M.S.), India. Two honey samples were strangely unifloral honeys with Alternanthera triandra representing the predominant pollen type. A. triandra Lam. (Family: Amaranthaceae) is a dominant weed locally referred as Matsyagandha. It is reported in honeys of Apis dorsata, Apis cerana, A. florea and the stingless bees. However, this is an exclusive finding wherein A. triandra Lam. is observed as a ‘predominant’ pollen type in melittopalynological investigation of Apis dorsata honeys.
