We study a new dynamic optimization model for sex allocation of marine benthic species, which have dwarf males. By dynamic programing calculation, we can drive the condition for three situations: [1] dominated by hermaphrodites, [2] a mixture of hermaphorodite and dwarf males, and [3] a mixture of females and dwarf males, depending on the productivity and stability of the habitat.
