In the paper ‘Sexual selection against deleterious mutations via variable male search success’ by MacLellan et al. (2009), we reported the effects of search effort on the selection against 10 mutation strains in Drosophila melanogaster. We have since had cause to doubt the specific genetic identity of one of the strains, labelled speck (sp). Removing that strain from the analyses causes no substantive change to the conclusions of the paper.
