A. Density distributions of body mass in three flightless New Zealand grasshopper species when alive (turquoise) and after ethanol-preservation for two (dark yellow) and four months (black); B. The distribution of the difference in mass between live and 4-month preserved specimens pooled for all three species and partitioned by sex. Mean values for male (-0.012 g) and females (-0.029 g) are indicate by dashed lines. Marginal rug indicates individual observations of body mass.
