Testis and accessory gland size, and fertility estimated from fertile egg counts of male sex-ratio meiotic drive and wildtype Teleopsis dalmanni

The data contain phenotype measures of Teleopsis dalmanni males. Individuals were all taken from a laboratory stock population. Individuals carried either a nondistorting wildtype X chromosome or a sex-ratio distorting X chromosome. Data were obtained by measuring images of testes, accessory glands, thorax and eyespan, and direct counts of fertilised (hatched) and unfertilised egg.
