Fig. 3

Shape variation in T. brasiliensis and T. melanica. (A) Factorial map showing the distribution of specimens in the plane of the two discriminant factors derived from discriminant analysis of the shape variables. Polygons correspond to each group under study, where continuous polygons enclose males and dotted polygons enclose females. DF1 and DF2 are the first and second discriminate factors, and their corresponding percentage contribution to the total shape variation is shown in parentheses. (B) Wing consensus shape obtained after the Generalized Procrustes Analyses (GPA). Arrows indicate the major differences in wing shape of T. brasiliensis and T. melanica
