Male sagebrush crickets (Cyphoderris strepitans) permit females to engage in an unusual form of sexual cannibalism during copulation: females feed on males’ fleshy hind wings and ingest hemolymph oozing from the wounds they inflict. These wounds are not fatal, and normally only a portion of the hind wings are eaten at any one mating, so that mated males are not precluded from mating again. As a result, nonvirgin males have fewer material resources to offer females than do virgin males, such… CONTINUE READING
