The Role of Spermatheca in Ovarian Maturation of the Fiddler Crab, UCA TRIANGULARIS BENGALI (CRANE, 1975)
      R. Krishnapriya, Dr. M. Padmaja
Abstract: In Uca triangularis bengali, when mating occurs, the spermatophores get stored in the spermatheca which in turn induces the maturation of the ovary. The sperm plug prevents further mating and the spermatophores are released in batches. By the time the spermatheca is empty, the ovary reaches the advanced stage of maturation and mature eggs are released for fertilization.
