Correspondence analysis allows identifying various kinds of propolis due to botanical source. The first site, Colliguay is identified by a higher content of pollen of Escallonia pulverulenta, and Nothofagus dombeyi. Two other very close sites are La Vacada and Quilaco, where pollen of Mentha pulegium, besides Echium, Cichorium, and Luma are frequently identified. Other groups including various contents of pollen of Eucalyptus, Salix or Prunus and other native resources such as Peumus, Cryptocarya and Quillaja are not well defined.
