Maintenance of colour polymorphism is particularly problematic in aposematic species, because selection should favour monomorphic warning coloration. Here the authors show that aposematic wood tiger moth expresses differential morph-linked immune responses in high densities. This can favour morphs in their respective natural environment, and facilitate maintenance of colour polymorphism.
