The weevils had the same colour and size as unopened flowerbudsand were difficult to spot without careful examination. The combination of relatively large staminateflowers with linear anthers and rapid inflorescence development (less than one month total anthesis time) appearsto be associatedwith pollinationby bees, sometimeswith participation of beetles (Coleoptera),bugs (Hemiptera), and wind, whereasthe combinationof small staminate flowers with minute oval anthersand slower inflorescence developmentappearsto be associatedwith pollinationby flies.
