The mangrove rivulus, Kryptolebias marmoratus, is one of two known vertebrate species with preferentially self-fertilizing hermaphrodites. Males also exist, and can outcross with hermaphrodites. Outcrossing events vary across wild populations and occur infrequently in laboratory settings. This study sought to add dimension to our understanding of m...

... In the selfing mangrove killifish species (K. marmoratus and K. hermaphroditus), most of the eggs laid externally are already fertilized via selfing (Harrington, 1971;Lomax et al., 2017), leaving a limited window of opportunity for outcrossing either by intra or heterospecific males. Despite this expected limitation, recent studies identified cases of undergoing hybridization involving the selfing Kryptolebias species. ...
