L-type apterae are operationally defined as those with the body width larger than 390 μm. The null hypothesis of a normal distribution is rejected for the body lengths. §The null hypothesis of a normal distribution is rejected for the body widths. The null hypothesis of a unimodal distribution is rejected for the body widths.
