Natural selection can generate parallel latitudinal clines in traits and gene frequencies across continents but these have rarely been linked. An amino acid (isoleucine to lysine, or I462K) polymorphism of the couch potato (cpo) gene in Drosophila melanogaster is thought to control female reproductive diapause cline in North America (Schmidt et al. 2008). Here, we show that under standard diapause inducing conditions (12 °C and short photoperiod) (Saunders et al. 1989), egg maturation in Australian...
