It occured to me afterwards that this was not what you wanted. I think Jerome Asselin in
http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/Rhelp02a/archive/15483.html has a solution that may do what you want

Try

legend(3, 0.45, legend = c("x1", "x2", "mean(x1)", "mean(x2)"), pch=c(22,22,30,30),

col = c("orange", "green"),
pt.bg=c("orange","green","white","white"),

lty = c(0, 0, 2, 2), merge = T)
