A fact from Gastropteridae appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 4 October 2017 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
... that while mating, some species of bat-winged slugs(pictured) stab each other with a two-pronged penis?"
Is this species' mating an example of traumatic insemination, or is the spiking simply an effort to hold onto the other individual? The text isn't quite clear on that point. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 02:08, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
It's an example of traumatic insemination I think, but the source did state that it was prostate fluid that was injected, and I assume that this contains sperm. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 08:16, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
