The maintenance of nonmimetic forms in a dimorphic batesian mimic species

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