Abstract

The studies were conducted at Kutas canal near Ártánd, Hungary. In order to reveal whether there is any relationship between wing fluctuating asymmetry and mating success in mated (observed at least once in wheel position) and solitary ♂ ♂ (not involved in pairing during the study period), 106 ♂ ♂ were marked and their wing length between arculus and pterostigma measured. Mated ♂ ♂ had more symmetrical forewings, but in the case of hindwings them were no differences between solitary and mated individuals. The survival rate did not differ between the 2 groups and it was constant over time. The probability of recapture was higher in mated ♂ ♂ and varied with time. The number of hours spent with observation did not explain the variation in the recapture rate.
