Animals employ multi-step mate recognition processes to mate with their proper partners, for a given mating season. The signals used in mate recognition in Crustacea are fairly well studied, but these studies have so far focused on the signals used in precopulatory (or courtship) behavior. Signals that mediate copulation have never been experimentally demonstrated. Here, we report the presence of a copulation pheromone in the crab Telmessus cheiragonus which was previously undescribed in… CONTINUE READING
