Fig. 1

dsxF+/− and dsxF−/− XX mutants have different wing beat frequencies (= flight tones) to all other groups. a Sketch of flight tone recording set-up: mosquitoes were tethered then placed at a constant distance from a microphone. Temperature and humidity conditions were controlled (21–22 °C; 50% RH) and recordings always took place within the same two-hour window. b Calculated wing beat frequencies for each genotype. Significant differences (two-way ANOVA; *P < 0.05) between groups are indicated by letter. Centre line mean; box limits, lower and upper quartiles; whiskers, 5th and 95th percentiles (identical B-C). Sample sizes: dsxF+/+ XX = 30; dsxF+/− XX = 30; dsxF−/− XX = 30; dsxF+/+ XY = 27; dsxF+/− XY = 30; dsxF−/− XY = 30. c Wing length measurements for each genotype. Significant differences (two-way ANOVA; *P < 0.05) between groups are indicated by letter. Sample sizes: dsxF+/+ XX = 40; dsxF+/− XX = 40; dsxF−/− XX = 40; dsxF+/+ XY = 41; dsxF+/− XY = 40; dsxF−/− XY = 41
