Abstract

Little attention has been given to a study of the pollination of cucurbits, The European Bryonia dioica was studied by Hermann Müller and Mr. T. C. Gentry has studied Cucurbita ovifera and C pepo, but his account is quite inaccurate in some important particulars. Mr. Gentry assumes that they are pollinated by the wind. lnsects, especially Hymenoptera, are the important pollinators. Coleoptera, especially Diabrotica rittata, D. longicornis, D. punctata, are frequently found in flowers and incidentally carry the pollen. Some of the Syrphus flies also assist in the pollination of Citrullus vulgaris.
