  • a Six males tested per allele. Males raised at 15° and shifted to 20° at late L4 stage, or to 25.5° at early L4 stage.

  • b Ranked in order of increasing severity of Daf-c phenotype, within each class.

  • c Standard mating efficiency rating, where 4 = 30–100% of wild-type mating efficiency, 3 = 10–30% of wild-type, 2 = 1–10% of wild-type, 1 = less than 1% of wild-type, and 0 = no detectable mating (Hodgkin 1983).
