Abstract

Females were larger than males but less common in the population. Paired females were larger than average while paired males were not, but successfully copulating males were larger than those in non-copulating pairs. Positive size assortative mating was only found among copulating pairs for the 2nd of 2 collections made during the breeding season. -from Author
