Wear and ovarian development of adult females caught in spring and summer. Fisher exact tests were used to compare the proportions of spring and summer females in each ovarian category. Unworn summer females with no ovarian development were excluded, as these females likely were newly eclosed. In L. laevissimum and L. hitchensi, spring females were significantly more likely to be fecund (largest oocyte at least 1/2-developed), while in L. ellisiae, spring and summer females showed similar levels of ovarian development (see Table 3 for statistics).
