Flower-Visiting Insects
of Lange's Hawthorn


Crataegus intricata (Lange's Hawthorn)
(Bees suck nectar or collect pollen, other insects suck nectar; observations are from Robertson. NOTE: Robertson was uncertain about the identity of this flowering shrub and referred to it as 'Crataegus coccincea?' in Flowers and Insects. This obsolete scientific name refers to several Crataegus spp. in North America. Among these, Crategus intricata is probably the best candidate because it has been found closer to Macoupin County, Illinois, where Robertson conducted his observations.)
