Bottleneck experiments for survival on a poor food plant were performed with larvae of the tropical butterfly Bicyclus anynana. It was examined whether the bottleneck experiments resulted in adaptation to the plant species. Attention is also paid to the wing pattern of this butterfly species as it is influenced by genetical factors. Compared to the original material the bottleneck experiments resulted in differences in survival rate, larval performance and wing pattern induction but did not lead to a clear adaptation to the new food plant species.
