Body size and fitness characters have been studied in Drosophila malerkotliana. Large flies were fast mating and had higher fecundity, fertility and greater longevity than slow mating small flies. Further, wing length was positively correlated with number of ovarioles. These studies indicate that large flies have higher fitness characters in D. malerkotliana.
