it is part of a “jataí” colony. Tetragonisca
I think T. angustula
I guess it’s the entrance tube of the nest. I agree witj Julio’s guess of Tetragonica angustula.
I think Viçosans should be kept away from Monday Night Mystery for some weeks…for some reason I’m not feeling good, but one cannot resist to answer the MNM!
Or brazilians in general… +1 for Tetragonisca.
Actually it was posted on FB, so everybody had access to this MNM, then no reasons to ban Brazilians at all. lol
It’s a white corn tortilla strip.
Paper wasp nest.
Nest entrance made of wax, of Tetragonisca angustula, from Brazil!
Ear wax. The dry kind.
Navajo fry bread, for sure. Might be good dipped in jatai honey!
