  • Courtship behaviour and songs of six Zaprionus species show differences not only between species but also between sexes. Courtship behaviour differs from that in the related genus Drosophila. In most species, males produce two song types which may alternate or be repeated. Singing occurs during courtship displays, mounting, after copulation and briefly during male-to-male interactions. Females produce a loud whine and body rocking movements in refusal but have a species-specific pulsed song… CONTINUE READING
