Female-limited polychromatism is found in many species of Odonata. In Ceriagrion tenellum (Coenagrionidae) one of the morphs is red-coloured, like the conspecific male (androchrome, erythrogastrum morph), whereas most females are red and black (typica morph) or black (melanogastrum morph). Virgin females of this species were mated in the laboratory and their progeny reared (13 crosses). Results of these crosses indicate that colour morphs are controlled by one autosomal locus with female… CONTINUE READING
