A visual stimulus in the courtship ofDrosophila suzukii

  • Y. Fuyama


The males ofDrosophila suzukii have a specific black spot on their wings and this was surgically removed. In this situation, the males were almost normally accepted by the females when they were stored under a diurnal light-dark cycle, but they were somewhat discriminated against by the females previously exposed to continuous light.
