Figure 2. The first male (on the left) to reach a female has fallen back exposing the upper surface of his mate. A male arriving a short time later has mounted the female and is attempting (unsuccessfully) to copulate with her while she is in copula with the first male. Even after the first male disengaged and left the female she remained unreceptive to the second male.
