Abstract

Time spent marking increased as A. ludens females deposited clutches in a given fruit previously marked zero, one, two or three times. This trend was paralleled by an increase in the number of pauses in marking behaviour within the host-marking bout. Within any given marking bout, the length of a sub-bout diminished progressively. Host-marking pheromone (while deterrent to females prior to egg-laying) actually stimulates continued host-marking behaviour after egg-laying. -from Authors
