Due to its ancient origin in the Permian and the high proportion of beetle-pollinated taxa within ancestral magnoliid lineages, it has been hypothesized that beetles were among the first floral visitors of the proto-angiosperms on Earth. Thus, beetle-pollinated flowers have become important model systems essential for the study of the origin and ev...
