The solitary long-horned bee Eucera berlandi exhibits a spectacular sexual dimorphism in the antennae. We describe the dimorphism in the peripheral olfactory system and its representation in higher order neuropils of the olfactory path. Furthermore, we compare this with the eusocial honeybee and discuss similarities and differences in a physiological and evolutionary context.
