Data from: Testing the adaptive hypothesis of Batesian mimicry among hybridizing North American admiral butterflies

Evan Breaux Kristiansen, Susan D. Finkbeiner, Ryan Isaac Hill, Louis Prusa & Sean Patrick Mullen
Batesian mimicry is characterized by phenotypic convergence between an unpalatable model and a palatable mimic. However, because convergent evolution may arise via alternative evolutionary mechanisms, putative examples of Batesian mimicry must be rigorously tested. Here we used artificial butterfly facsimiles (N=4000) to test the prediction that 1) palatable Limenitis lorquini butterflies should experience reduced predation when in sympatry with their putative model, Adelpha californica, 2) protection from predation on L. lorquini should erode outside of...
