Observing bees at the local churchyard recently, I saw four different Melecta albifrons. Interestingly, three examples were the dark-form. I've only seen these very occasionally before. It got me thinking. Were these three all related? Do dark-form females produce all dark-form offspring or are the dark forms just occasional genetic variations?
