Summary Traits which differ among species in a genus are considered to be the product of relatively rapid evolution. Laboratory studies indicate that copulation differs between two species of the banana slug Ariolimax with A. dolichophallus having a pattern of a single, long duration (typically greater than 1 h) intromission which is simultaneously reciprocal, and A. californicus having mating encounters typically involving a bout of brief (typically 10–20 min) unilateral intromissions… Expand
A review of mating behavior in slugs of the genus Deroceras (Pulmonata: Agriolimacidae)*
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the radiation of mating behaviors and associated structures has been driven by an arms race resulting from conflicting interests of mating partners over sperm donation and use and this could also have increased the rate of speciation in Deroceras. Expand
Phally polymorphism and reproductive biology in Ariolimax (Ariolimax) buttoni (Pilsbry and Vanatta, 1896) (Stylommatophora: Arionidae)*
TLDR
Phally polymorphism, uniparental reproduction, and the variation in generation time should play important roles in determining the variance of mating success and the potential for sexual selection in this hermaphroditic species. Expand
Mating in Veronicella sloanii (Cuvier, 1817) (Veronicellidae)
TLDR
Aggressive behavior during mating in this slug was manifested by non-mating individuals pushing themselves between mating pairs resulting in the withdrawal of the penis of the mating pairs and cessation of copulation. Expand
Records of the slugs Ariolimax columbianus (Ariolimacidae) and Prophysaon foliolatum (Arionidae) imported into Sweden
Two North American slug species are reported from three locations in southern Sweden: three records (in 2005, 2014 and 2015) of Ariolimax columbianus (Gould) and one 2005 record of ProphysaonExpand
A literature database on the mating behavior of stylommatophoran land snails and slugs*
TLDR
This work reviews studies on the mating behavior of snails and slugs and creates a central access point and database for use as a resource by those interested in stylommatophoran mating behavior. Expand
Female loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta L.) rarely remate during nesting season
TLDR
Benefits to loggerhead females likely equal their costs and subsequent mating is likely determined by female preference, suggesting that females likely mate at the beginning of the season and use stored sperm for multiple clutches. Expand
Effect of mating history on gender preference in the hermaphroditic snail Physa acuta
TLDR
It is found that the time to the first copulation was unaffected by isolation status, suggesting that first contacts in this species are random processes, and the duration of copulations and the frequency of rejection behaviours suggested that individual gender preference switches from male biased to female biased as isolation increases. Expand
Sex and Recombination in Snails
TLDR
Snails (Mollusca: Gastropoda) are a diverse class of mollusks inhabiting marine, terrestrial, and freshwater ecosystems, and an astounding diversity of other systems have repeatedly evolved, including apomictic parthenogenesis, protandrous hermaphroditism, and simultaneous hermafiltration. Expand
Tales of two snails: sexual selection and sexual conflict in Lymnaea stagnalis and Helix aspersa.
  • J. Koene
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Integrative and comparative biology
  • 2006
TLDR
Findings support the existence of sexual conflict in simultaneously hermaphroditic snails, and its importance for the evolution of mating behaviors and reproductive morphologies is discussed. Expand
Reproductive strategies in hermaphroditic gastropods: Conceptual and empirical approaches
TLDR
The suggestions are to focus on sex-biased traits, to take biologically reliable measurements at both the pre- and post-copulatory level that relate to reproductive success, and to examine the fitness consequences of biased sex allocation. Expand

Revision of the Giant West Coast Land Slugs of the Genus Ariolimax Moerch (Pulmonata: Arionidae)
TLDR
A revision of the taxonomy of this genus is published with adequate information on its speciation, phylogeny, and distribution, and the morphological aspects are limited to those external and internal structures, which are or have been considered of taxonomic importance. Expand
8 – Sperm Competition in Molluscs
TLDR
Different lines of evidence are presented which suggest that sperm competition might be important in the evolution of the reproductive behavior in some groups of molluscs and the adaptive significance of sperm polymorphism is still not known and needs to be assessed. Expand
The relationship between mating system and simultaneous hermaphroditism in the coral reef fish, Hypoplectrus nigricans (Serranidae)
TLDR
Since most of the reproductive effort of an individual is spent on female functions, egg trading provides a fecundity advantage to hermaphroditism, making it evolutionarily stable relative to dioecy, analogous to that which parthenogenetic organisms have over sexual ones. Expand
Sex economy in benthic polychaetes
TLDR
Simultaneous hermaphroditism is stabilized by slow sperm production and regular egg trading between partners of a pair and some 80% of the physiological reproductive effort is allocated to the female functions. Expand

  • J. Leonard

  • 2004
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the mating systems described for a group of species of simultaneously hermaphroditic serranid fishes offers evidence that cheating in the male role is found in all of the species studied and explains the harem polygyny system of two species. Expand
Steroids of invertebrates. IV. On the optic tentacle-gonadal axis in the control of the male-phase ovotestis in the slug (Ariolimax californicus).
TLDR
Results suggested that tentacular control of the male phase of the ovotestis might be limited to that portion of the gonad cycle up to the point of spermiation, and steroids appeared to influence the effect of this tentacular regulator or modifier of ovotesticular development. Expand
Reciprocal egg trading and brood care in a hermaphroditic polychaete worm

Ophryotrocha diadema is a simultaneous hermaphrodite polychaete worm with a brief protandrous phase that was investigated in order to elucidate the relationships between mating system and reproductive biology. Expand

Intra-sexual selection in Drosophila.
TLDR
Epigamic selection includes the major part of what Darwin meant by sexual selection, and is introduced to apply to characters which increased the fertility of a given mating and therefore had a selective value for the species as a whole. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that egg production by simultaneous hermaphrodites also obeys this principle-that fertilized eggproduction by an individual is not limited by sperm availability, but by resources allocated to eggs. Expand
