Shivakumar P

Females may obtain greater direct benefits by mating with the male showing some types of signals, independently of the costs independent in such species. Five to six days old virgin females and a male (young/middle aged and older) were aspirated into an Elens-Wattaiux mating chamber and observed for an hour.
