However, in Santa Cruz and many other areas where Monarchs are common, an unrelated species called the Viceroy (Limenitis archippus) has evolved markings that are almost identical to the Monarch’s, a situation that biologists call Batesian mimicry. The Viceroys free-ride on the Monarch’s high reputation and are even fitter because they do not bear the dietary cost. Daniel Friedman and Nirvikar Singh 37 Note that we have not described evolutionary equilibrium in the butterfly– bird game. Although evolution favours population growth of Viceroys when scarce, it does not favour either species once the Viceroys become common.

How can it persist? We shall argue that the threat of visits to quadrant iii (wreaking vengeance) helps to discipline opportunistic behaviour and encourages co-operation. But first we mention two other, better-known, devices that can serve the same purpose: genetic relatedness and repeated interactions. Genetic r elatedness Biologists emphasize the device of genetic relatedness. If Other is related to Self to degree r > 0, then a positive fraction of Other’s payoffs are internalized via ‘inclusive fitness’ (Hamilton, 1964) and iso-fitness lines take the form x + ry = k .

Model reciprocal preferences as statedependent: my attitude towards your payoffs depends on my state of mind – for example, friendly or vengeful, and your behaviour systematically alters my state of mind. This state-dependent Other-regarding approach is consistent with Sobel (2000) and is hinted at in some other papers including Charness and Rabin (2001). The approach is quite flexible and tractable, but in general requires a psychological theory of how states of mind change. Fortunately, a very simple rule will suffice for our present purposes: you become vengeful towards those who betray your trust, and otherwise have standard selfish preferences.
