Table 3 Percentage of Type I pseudocopulation grouped by female taxon (all mate trials involving female D. m. baja , male D. m. mojavensis , etc.), for each mate group (CS = conspecific pairing, HT = heterotypic pairing HS = heterospecific pairing)

From: The role of aedeagus size and shape in failed mating interactions among recently diverged taxa in the Drosophila mojavensisspecies cluster

Species %CS^ %HT^ %HS^
D. m. baja* 30.0 1.8 100.0
D. m. mojavensis* 0.0 25.0 75.0
D. m. sonorensis* 10.5 38.8 100.0
D. m. wrigleyi* 7.4 9.4 100.0
D. arizonae 0.0 - 16.3
  1. * = significant among mating group type (horizontal), ^ = significant among taxa (vertical) using Fisher’s Exact test for multiple pairwise comparisons with Bonferroni correction (α = 0.05). (“-” denotes no HT cross exists for D. arizonae.).
