Abstract

MENEZES, Rodolpho S T; CARVALHO FILHO, Antonio F; RAW, Anthony  and  COSTA, Marco A. Epipona media cooper (Hymenoptera: Vespidae), a social wasp new to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Neotrop. entomol. [online]. 2010, vol.39, n.6, pp. 1046-1047. ISSN 1519-566X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-566X2010000600031.

An occupied nest of Epipona media Cooper was discovered and collected in a cabruca (cocoa plantation with native tree cover). This is the first record of E. media from Bahia State. We described the nest structure and compared the adults with the closely related species Epipona tatua Cuvier.

Keywords : Nest architecture; geographical distribution; Epipona tatua.
