Bees of 3 families of Hymenoptera: Apidae, Megachilidae, and Halictidae, have been indicated to be potential cross pollinators of the cultivated peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) (Hammons et al. 1963). These bees consist of 18 identified species associated with the peanut flower. The species differ in the way they visit and gather pollen. In this paper we describe the pollen-tripping mechanism in the peanut flower and present some observations of associated bee visits made in 1964 near Tifton, Ga.
