← Research sheds light on benefits of multiple mates

I may be mistaken, but I seem to remember an article some years ago about the mating habits of the damsel fly. The females mate with many different males. The males' strategy is to extract the sperm already deposited before they release their own sperm.

Let me know if I got it wrong.
