To estimate the significance of the shape of the female sperm storage organs with regard to sperm priority patterns and the possible influence of the broken embolus tip for subsequent males in Latrodectus revivensis we examined the morphology of virgin and mated females’ epigyna and male pedipalps by… CONTINUE READING
