However, adult females are sedentary in this protandrous
hermaphrodite (Chaparro et al.
Individual flowers are distinctly dichogamous and protandrous
, with a pause of [+ or -] 12 hrs between the male and female phases.
With the largest whelk within a population dominated by females, the question of sequential protandrous
hermaphroditism within this species arises.
This can be attributed to the protandrous
condition that some species of this genus undergo (Chavez-Villalba et al.
High mobility of the protandrous
anemonefish Amphiprion frenatus: nonrandom pair formation in limited shelter space.
Typical of the tribe Cichorieae, all florets possessed ligulate corollas, were perfect, and protandrous
male optimizes his chances to encounter females by mating early in the flight period (Zonneveld 1992).
This pattern has been reported in other places for other species including snappers, Pristipomoides filamentosus ; Aprion virescens and Etelis coruscans ; black breams, Acanthopagrus butcheri  and sharks, Acanthopagrus latus  who added a note that once a protandrous
hermaphrodite fish has become a functional female, it remains a female throughout the rest of its life.
5-5 cm long, oblique relative to calyx, protandrous
, infundibuliform; base gibbous, 6-7 mm in diameter, gibbosity 4-5.
This fish is a protandrous
hermaphrodite species (TAYLOR et al.
The flowers of this genus are protandrous
and produce nectar (N.
Passion fruit flowers are protandrous
as anther dehisces before stigma become receptive, and stigma remains receptive from the time of flower opening to closing (Cox, 1957).
