  1. Notes: Mean values of wing lengths and flight tones for dsxF+/+, dsxF+/− and dsxF+/+ XX and XY mosquitoes, with standard deviation (SD) values provided in brackets. Significant differences found between dsxF−/− XX mosquitoes and any other mosquito group in terms of wing length (ANOVA: males, F(1, 114) = 82.7644, P < 0.0001; dsxF+/+ XX, F(2, 57) = 3.731, P = 0.01) or flight tone (ANOVA: F(5, 114) = 336.471, P < 0.0001) are starred
