Differences in behaviour, such as the mate-locating tactic, may favour the evolution of interspeci®c and intersexual differences in the structure of the visual system. This notion was tested by examining the relationships between eye size, body size, sex and mate-locating tactic in 16 species of butter ̄ies. The 16 species were grouped in eight phylogenetically close pairs that differed in the mate-locating tactic displayed by the males. Eye size was characterized by eye surface area, which was… CONTINUE READING
