Samples were taken from single- and mixed-species populations of two spiders, Enoplognatha ovata and E. latimana, which share visible polymorphisms. The range of colour-morph frequencies was comparable between the species but E. latimana had a uniformly lower proportion of individuals with black spots. Spotted E. ovata females were more likely to have cocoons when collected than females without spots, although in spotted individuals there was no relationship between presence of cocoons and spot… CONTINUE READING
