Abstract Considering the important roles of pollinators in ecosystem services, their identification and studies of their behavior would be extremely important to efforts directed towards their preservation and management. With the aim of examining the diversity and behavior of the floral visitors to Campomanesia adamantium (Cambessédes) O. Berg (“guavira”) and how they act in the pollination process, a total of 31 species belonging to the orders Hymenoptera (79.30 %), Coleoptera (11.34 %), Diptera (9.1 %), and Hemiptera (0.24 %) were identified. Among the Hymenoptera, africanized Apis mellifera, Brachygastra lecheguana, and Trachymyrmex sp. were considered domin...
