Sex ratio (percent male), ability of ovisac bearing individuals to reproduce in isolation and the presence or absence of ovotestis in ovisac bearing individuals is shown. See Table S5 for detailed information.

* Depending on population. ** Only in populations where sex ratio is < 30%. *** Reported gonochoric with even sex ratio, exact numbers not given.
