Table 2 Insemination rates in free-mating crosses between An. albitarsis from the laboratory colony, F1 mosquitoes of the original population (Massaranduba, Santa Catarina State, Brazil) and their reciprocal hybrids.

From: Adaptation of a South American malaria vector to laboratory colonization suggests faster-male evolution for mating ability
