Figure 1

Histogram showing the proportion of female morphs that were caught copulating for the first time, as indicated by a spermatheca without sperm. The blue line indicates androchrome morphs. The same axis is used for all data. Androchrome frequency in the population (caught between 08:30–10:00) is denoted by a circle and androchromes in copula (caught between 10:00–15:00) by a square. The sample size number (N) of dissected androchrome and gynochrome females is indicated on each histogram.
