The Wikipedia page on sexual cannibalism (e.g. female spiders eating their mates) currently has a statement that sounds wrong to me, but I don't feel expert enough to edit it out:
An additional benefit to cannibalization is the idea that a well-fed female is less likely to mate again.
I can't see why that would be the case. Why not continue to seek a second, better, mate? Unless perhaps being well-fed makes you a slower, larger target for predators, so hiding for a while is a better tactic.
The reference given is to
Female hunger can explain variation in cannibalistic behavior despite male sacrifice in redback spiders. 9, 33–42 (1988)
A bit of searching suggests the author meant to include Behaviour Ecology as the journal name. I've only read the abstract, but it does not seem to support the statement. It suggests a well-fed female is less likely to consume her mate, which seems intuitive.
Am I right that this Wikipedia sentence is incorrect? If I am wrong, is there an explanation for the effect that I am missing?
