Kramer, Bernd and Otto, Brunhilde (1988) Female discharges are more electrifying: spontaneous preference in the electric fish, Eigenmannia (Gymnotiformes, Teleostei). Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology 23 (1), pp. 55-60.
The tropical South American teleost Eigenmannia lineata showed a spontaneous preference for the female type, compared with the male type, of its sexually dimorphic, weak-electric organ discharge (EOD).
