Unimodal hybrid zones are geographically constrained; with most individuals in the zone having mixed ancestry, and the width of the hybrid zone depending on hybrid disadvantage and dispersal of the species (Jiggins and Mallet 2000).
This can be described by the terminology of Jiggis and Mallet (2000) who popularized the concept of a bimodal hybrid zone, the contact zone of two species with a limited degree of hybridization.

palliata in the hybrid zone of Tabasco, Mexico (compared to purebred individuals in different areas) allowed researchers to tease apart the effects of genetics, social structure and environmental factors on the behavior of the studied animals, and revealed ancestry as an important determinant of the female social behavior (Ho et al., 2014).
When sampling transects of differing ages and, for the moment ignoring the possibility of movement, four patterns of variation in hybrid zone width are possible (Table 1).
However, factors noted by previous investigators such as the presence of assortative mating based on colorimetric characters and the limited size of the hybrid zone support the current classification of L.
