Is it possible for a hermaphrodite species to present cross-fecundation?

1 year ago

There are hermaphrodite species of animals and plants that present cross- fecundation mainly due to the maturation of female and male structures at different periods.

Cross fecundation occurs in planarias, hermaphrodites in which sexual fecundation takes place with male and female gametes from different individuals. These individuals approach their copulating structures and exchange gametes.
