Differential mating success of virgin female katydids Requena verticalis (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)



Differential mating success of virgin female katydids Requena verticalis (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)



Journal of Insect Behavior, 51: 51-59



Male katydids invest in offspring through nutrients provided in a large spermatophore. Previous research with Requena verticalis had shown that almost all of the investment of males mating with recently mated (4 days previously) females was in eggs fertilized by the female's previous mate. Thus, males were predicted to discriminate against such females as mates.
