We report the existence of partial reproductive isolation between two natural populations of the flour beetle, Tribolium confusum, collected in Kaduna, Nigeria and Zagreb, Croatia. When a female from either population is paired with a single sympatric or allopatric male, she produces near normal numbers of semifertile offspring. However, when females are multiply mated with allopatric and sympatric males, the sympatric males sire the large majority of offspring. When measured in offspring… CONTINUE READING
