The blackeye goby (Rhinogobiops nicholsii) is a protogynous
fish that occurs from British Columbia, Canada to central Baja California, Mexico where it is closely associated with rocky reef habitat (Love 2011).
In females of some protogynous
gobies, a precursor to a testicular secretory organ develops during early gonadal differentiation.
Honeybees cannot be potential visitors because they are completely unable to enter the small pollination chamber of the protogynous
Annonaceae flowers during receptivity of the stigmas (for the very rare bee pollination mode in Annonaceae by euglossine bees in the genus Unonopsis see below).
The sex ratio is more biased in protogynous
(female first) than in protandrous (male first) species (Allsop & West 2004).
