A vespid wasp (Parachartergus sp.; left) and a wasp-mimicking tiger moth (Myrmecopsis strigosa; right) from Guatemala. Many tiger moths are chemically defended and are therefore considered müllerian mimics of wasps11. Whether the better defended of the two species is helped or harmed by this mimicry is the general question investigated by Rowland et al.1. (Photo courtesy of R. Simmons and S. Weller.)
