Abstract

The existence of two species of dwarf honey bees has only recently generally been accepted. Since they coexist in many locations, this leads to the question of how they differ so that they can both be present. This article presents a comparison of the biology of these species, particularly as they occur in Thailand. We do this to highlight what we do not know about these two very similar species, as well as what we do know.
