Sexual receptivity was investigated in female Ghssina morsitans morsitans Westwood after mating. The degree of insemination and duration of copulation could affect sexual receptivity when females mate with immature males. However, matings with mature males showed no effect. The “jerking phase” appears to be an important mechanical factor in female post-mating refractory behaviour
