The data deposited here are the raw quantification of wing shape and pattern of Heliconius butterflies resulting from controlled inter-specific crosses and individuals from the parental species. They were obtained by analysing wing pictures through an analysis of pattern with a method called CPM (Le Poul et al, 2014) and geometric morphometry.
In the pattern tab, each column is a principal component of an analysis of pattern taking into account the colour of each pixel.
In the shape tab, each column is the coordinate of the landmarks (20 for the forewing, FW, 18 for the hindwing, HW)
In all tabs, 4 columns include the id of the specimen, its sex, origin and species status (Panama: CP = H. cydno chioneus, MP = H. melpomene rosina, MPxCP = F1 hybrid between H. cydno chioneus and H. melpomene rosina, CPx(MPxCP)= backcross towards H. cydno chioneus, MPx(MPxCP)= backcross towards H. melpomene rosina --- Peru: T= H. timareta thelxinoe, M, H. melpomene amaryllis, F1= F1 hybrid between H. timareta thelxinoe and .H melpomene amaryllis, BT= backcross towards H. timareta thelxinoe, BM= backcross towards H. melpomene amaryllis)
