Fig-pollinating wasps have provided model systems for developing and testing theories of the evolution of mutualism, sex allocation, and precision of adaptation. With few exceptions, previous studies have assumed one species of pollinator wasp per host fig species. Here we report genetic data demonstrating the coexistence of previously undetected cryptic(More)
We used recently developed microsatellites to directly estimate inbreeding levels in two pairs of coexisting cryptic fig wasp species ('Pegoscapus hoffmeyeri sp. A and sp. B', 'P. gemellus sp. A and sp. B'). Previous tests of Hamilton's local mate competition (LMC) theory in fig wasps have used the number of dead foundresses in a fig fruit to indirectly(More)
