The electric organ discharges (EODs) of male southern bulldog fish, Marcusenius pongolensis, are of longer pulse duration than those of females, and grow with body size. In a playback experiment, male EODs of longer pulse duration were more attractive to females in terms of association time and other behavioural variables. Here, we show that the greater attraction of long male EODs to females was ...
