Record #143823:

Mykjuflugan / Hrefna Sigurjónsdóttir.

Title: Mykjuflugan / Hrefna Sigurjónsdóttir.
Translated title: The dung fly.
Author(s): Sigurjónsdóttir, Hrefna.
Date: 1997.
Language: Icelandic.
In: Náttúrufraedingurinn. (1997.), Vol. 67(1) (1997)
Abstract: Paper surveys reproductive behaviour of yellow dung fly, Scatophaga stercoraria (L.). Some aspects of species ecology are also covered, such as population fluctuations and effect of larval competition on adult size. Populations have spring and autumn peaks in most countries, but in Iceland there is no summer decline. Males seem able to assess their size and act accordingly; larger ones are more likely to search and copulate on cowpats than on surrounding grass, and more likely to guard their mates until eggs are laid. They get larger mates.
