Abstract

Genetic variability of the pre-mating period in the mass-reared melon fly was evaluated by a quantitative genetic method for each sex. Males had heritable variation in pre-mating period, whereas in females no significant heritability was found. The long-term mass-reared melon flies had a shorter pre-mating period than the short-term reared flies. Possible selection pressure on flies during the mass-rearing of the Okinawa Prefecture is discussed.
