Morphologicd Variation of the Asian Honeybee Apis cerana (F.) (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in West Java l%e d b s i t y of Asian honeybee Apis cerana (E) (Hymenoptera: Apidae) occupying low and high altitude habitats in Wmt J m war studied using morphological analysis, based on the length of proboscis, hindleg, fmnt wing, tergi'tes, and sternites. AN morphological characters measured were signifcantly longer in high altitude bem conrpmed do those of low altitude bees (b < 0.05), except proboscis. Dendogram analysis showed that bees jimn those two altitmb were separated, whereas the result of principal component analysis indicated that both belong to the same group (P < 0.05).
