  1. In hermaphroditic expression, category and sub-category are recognized based on the frequency of sex expression in 2- to 6-year-old progeny. In hermaphrodites, for example, sub-category "only F and M years" means that there are both years when female expression was observed and years when male expression was observed. In "only F and H years", for example, "biased to F years" means that number of years when female expression was observed are more than that when hermaphroditic expression was observed.
