For example, the interactions between tritons, Taricha granulosa, and snakes, Thamnophis sirtalis (Brodie, Ridenhour and Brodie, 2002), and between moths, Greya politella, and woodland star Lithophragma parviflorum (Thompson and Pellmyr, 1992) present evidence of evolution for only one of the interacting species.
Known cases of both pollinating and seed-consuming interactions between plants and their pollinators include Silene vulgaris and Hadena moths (Pettersson 1991a, Pettersson 1992a), Lithophragma and Greya moths (Thompson and Pellmyr 1992, Davis et al.
Greya politella moths are effective pollinators but are commensalistic with Lithophragma in years or populations where co-pollinators are abundant because their positive effects on seed set are masked by co-pollinators (Thompson and Pellmyr 1992, Pellmyr et al.
