SummaryThe distribution of sexually efficient males has been analysed in two populations made up of 5 times more females than males. When observation stops as soon as the number of inseminated females equals the number of males, 25 per cent of males in both strains had not mated, 50 per cent of the matings were performed by 50 per cent of the males who mated only once and the other 50 per cent of matings were performed by 25 per cent of the males who mated 2 or 3 times.
