Let G be a complex connected reductive group, Gθ be its fixed point subgroup under a Galois involution θ and H be an open subgroup of Gθ. We show that any H-distinguished representation π satisfies:(1)πθ≃ π~ , where π~ is the contragredient representation and πθ is the twist of π under θ.(2)dimC(π∗)H≤|B\G/H|, where B is a Borel subgroup of G. By proving the first statement, we give a partial answer to a conjecture by Prasad and Lapid.
