a Map showing spatial distribution of V. moorii breeding territories in our study quadrat as sampled in the dry season (October 2015). Both grey and black circles represent the locations of breeding pairs’ territories. While the grey circles represent the territories where the breeding pair was caught, the black circles represent the territories next to which unpaired males (i.e. potential cuckolders) were also caught. The dotted circle provides a measure of scale (in this case, 6 m) and can be used to count how many breeding territories are within a X m proximity of the unpaired male. b and c panels show the permuted null distributions for Δr (see the ‘Methods’ for details) for each relatedness estimator separately and calculated at a radius of 6 m. The vertical bars indicate our observed Δr values. Asterisk indicates significant results after implementing the Benjamini–Hochberg procedure for controlling false discovery rates, here set to 10%. Our observed Δr values were higher than expected by chance for all radii tested from 6 to 10 m
