Chemical transvestism in a rove beetle Similar 'transvestism' is also exhibited by the European rove beetle Aleochara curtula, which congregates on carrion and feeds on flies which are attracted to it. Young males who are sexually immature, and older males who may have been sexually capable for some time, can become temporarily starved of the resources necessary to manufacture a spermatophore.
