dc.description.abstractWe examined the asymmetry in forewings and hindwings, the abdomen length, and the mass of male dark-winged damselflies (C. maculata) observed in competitive interactions. Results showed that the mass ratio of confrontational pairs of damselflies was the only variable that had a significant difference between pairs who escaled into aerial contests and pairs who failed to escalate after the assessment hover. This result was consistent with the predictions of the assessment hypothesis, specifically that interactions between two males of similar mass escalated into aerial contests more often than those between two damselflies with very different masses.en_US
