Following publication of our article [1], we found errors in Table 4b. These errors do not make any difference to the main findings and conclusions reported in our paper. The numbers in the column for the range of mean ± 1 standard deviation for hind wings were incorrect. We wish to apologize for the mistake made and inconveniences caused.

The corrected Table 4b is listed below:

Table Table 4. List of alate characters measured by species showing mean, standard deviation, range of values and range of mean ± one std. dev.
