Pollinator

Postby adam89frew » Wed Mar 17, 2010 5:27 pm

Does anyone know the major pollinators of the species Hypocyrta glabra? It has small pouched flowers which are red/orange in colour, often called the goldfish plant.

I have searched everywhere, but I cannot find the information. I have tried looking for if it has a strong scent to see if i could narrow down the possible pollinators but this info is also absent from my searches.

Thanks in Advance

did you try searching Nemantanthus genus instead of Hypocyrta? they are synonyms and maybe you can find more information in that way.
i think the pollinatior is a hummingbird
