  1. D: shell diameter, H: shell height, Ntub: number of spermathecal tubules, F.Ch.: length of the fertilization chamber, M.T.: length of the main tubule, LAT.t: the cumulative length of lateral tubules, TOT.t: the cumulative length of all tubules. Marked correlations (*) are significant at p < 0.05
