We investigated short-term changes in relative paternity among a female's offspring in the long-finned squid Loligo pealeii. We conducted mating trials in the laboratory in which a single female mated with 2 males over the course of a few hours while laying successive egg capsules. Through microsatellite typing, we determined the males' relative paternities for the first and second egg capsules laid during each of 10 mating trials. Relative paternity of the first egg capsule was typ- ically in… Expand
