Table 3 Results of a non-parametric Kruskal–Wallis analysis of variance (ANOVA), calculated from Mosimann’s variables, for differences between males and females of Rhyncholestes raphaunurus Osgood, for La Picada (Chile), the locality with the largest number of specimens. Total number of specimens (n), and specimens by sex (between brackets) are indicated for each measurement. Asterisks mark significant differences (if existent) for sequential Bonferroni-corrected values, following Rice [39]. See text for variable abbreviations
