We investigated the evolution of genital asymmetry in fish of the family Anablepidae, in which males' intromittent organ (the gonopodium, a modified anal fin) bends asymmetrically to the left or the right. In most species, males show a 1 : 1 ratio of left-to-right-sided gonopodia. However, we found that in three species left-sided males are significantly more abundant than right-sided ones. We mapped sidedness onto a new molecular phylogeny, finding that this left-sided bias likely evolved independently three times. Our breeding experiment in a species with an excess of left-sided males showed that sires produced more left-sided offspring independently of their own sidedness. We propose that sidedness might be inherited as a threshold trait, with different thresholds across species. This resolves the apparent paradox that, while there is evidence for the evolution of sidedness, commonly there is a lack of support for its heritability and no response to artificial selection. Focusing on the heritability of the left : right ratio of offspring, rather than on individual sidedness, is key for understanding how the direction of asymmetry becomes genetically assimilated.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Rometsch, Sina J.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rometsch, Sina J.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Goyenola, Guillermo</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-05-16T13:21:48Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Aguilera, Gastón</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kautt, Andreas F.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Deprá, Gabriel C.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
