Most studies of evolutionary stable strategies (ESSes) assume clonal reproduction. At least in the simplest cases, more realistic genetic models yield results compatible with the clonal results. In this paper we study a case where the diploid and clonal results are not expected to be similar: evolution in a metapopulation with small local population sizes. It turns out, that although there are differences between the clonal and diploid ESS dispersal rates, the trait under consideration, the discrepancy is irrelevant for all practical purposes (less than 2%).
