Seahorses: an identification guide to the world's species and their conservation. Overall the Gulf pipefish mating system is best described as polyandrous, with a male typically receiving eggs from only one female, and a female often mating with multiple males during the time of male pregnancy.
Brown J, The genetic mating systems appear to be causally related to the intensity of sexual selection, with secondary sex characters evolving most often in females of the more polyandrous species. Trivers RL, Microsatellite-based studies of parentage in pipefishes and seahorse sex role reversal in pipe in El Monte have also provided novel perspectives on the evolution of the markers themselves, and on the broader use of molecular parentage analyses in population studies.

In addition, there was clear evidence for multiple mating by females. Nature : 58 —
