Table 4 Results of a non-parametric Kruskal–Wallis analysis of variance (ANOVA), calculated from Mosimann’s variables for differences between males and females of Rhyncholestes raphanurus Osgood, with specimens from all continental localities (i.e., excluding Chiloé Island). The number of analyzed 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
