The affect of female body width on copulation duration in Centrobolus inscriptus (Attems)

Mark Ian Cooper

Body size is a known correlate of copulation duration in Centrobolus inscriptus. I tested for the presence of a relationship between female body width and copulation duration in C. inscriptus by performing mating experiments. Females differed significantly from males in body mass, body length, and dorsal tergite width. Female width was positively related to copulation duration. Larger females are expected to be more fecund.
