Females of the woodlouse Armadillidium peraccae were isolated each with three males of different genotypes specially chosen to make it possible to distinguish all animals born according to their fathers. Thus it was found that, after one parturial moulting, the broods of 18 females out of 27 consisted of descendants of at least two males, 6 of them even of three males. The occurrence of these mixed progenies proves that a female is able to mate with more than one male during a parturial moulting, the only time females are able to copulate. For this experiment two mutations affecting body colour were used, the formerly described "carotineum" and a new one, "rubescens", which is allelic to carotineum.
