[4.2] Sexual Dimorphism

The Atlas Moth is sexually dimorphic [10]. Firstly, females are much larger than the males [11] . Secondly, the antennae differ between the two sexes [11]. The first difference is the antennae of the male is wider and longer than the female [11]. The second difference is the male’s antennae are much more feathery than the females [11] . The purpose of this is to enable males to track down the stationary females by her pheromones [10].
