The maintenance of nonmimetic forms in a dimorphic batesian mimic species


, : The maintenance of nonmimetic forms in a dimorphic batesian mimic species. Evolution 30(1): 82-85

Females of the Papilio glaucus sp. exhibit dimorphism as a black form, mimicing the unpalatable butterfly Battus philenor. The locus for this mimicry is sex-linked, the males exhibiting a yellow phenotype. Mathematical interpretations of population data indicate that mating preferences and natural selection may maintain the polymorphism, but are not necessary conditions for its existence.

Prudic, K.L.; Oliver, J.C., 2008: Once a Batesian mimic, not always a Batesian mimic: mimic reverts back to ancestral phenotype when the model is absent. Batesian mimics gain protection from predation through the evolution of physical similarities to a model species that possesses anti-predator defences. This protection should not be effective in the absence of the model since the predator does no...
