Summary
Teppner H. 2018. The first records of vibratory pollen-collection by bees. – Phyton (Horn, Austria) 57 (1–2): 129–135, with 2 figures.

After a thorough analysis of the respective texts, the opinion that Sprengel 1793 or Burck 1887 had discovered vibra­tory pollen-collection cannot be sustained. The first unambiguous descriptions of vibratory pollen-collection date back to Lindman 1902 for bumblebees (on Senna alata), to Schrottky 1908 for Oxaea, Augochlora, Xylocopa, Psaenythia, Ptilo­glossa and others (on Senna occidentalis, Physalis viscosa and Solanum paniculatum), and to Meidell 1944 for Megachile willughbiella and bumblebees (on Melampyrum pratense). Original texts and English translations are provided.
