Molecular relationships between populations of South African citrus thrips (Scirtothrips aurantii Faure) in South Africa and Queensland, Australia

Morris, David; Mound, Laurence A


In response to the recent establishment of a population of South African citrus thrips (Scirtothrips aurantii Faure) in Australia, we used DNA sequence data to examine whether this population is distinct from populations in South Africa. Mitochondrial and internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) DNA from populations from different host plants in Australia and South Africa showed no clear separation between populations that was entirely congruent with host plant or country of origin. Analysis of the...[Show more]
