Data from: Roaming Romeos: male crickets evolving in silence show increased locomotor behaviours

Susan L. Balenger & Marlene Zuk
Loss of sexual signals should be strongly selected against when these signals are necessary for mate attraction or acquisition. Male Teleogryllus oceanicus field crickets produce a long-distance calling song to attract females. Separate genetic mutations recently evolved on the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai and Oahu, rendering approximately 90% and 50% of males, respectively, incapable of calling.
