Abstract

Biochemical systematics of the leaf-mining moth family Nepticulidae (Lepidoptera). I. Allozyme variability in the Stigmella betulicola, S. lapponica and S. marginicolella groups J.W. van DRIEL and S.B.J. MENKEN Allozyme variability at eight loci among nine species belonging to the Stigmella betulicola, S. lapponica and S. marginicolella species-groups was studied using horizontal starch gel electro- phoresis. Mean observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.086 in S. sakhalinella to 0.135 in S. continuella. Genetic distances were generally very large and ranged from 1.269 between S. con- fusella and S'. lapponica to 8.041 between S. sakhalinella and S. luteella. Moreover, S. continu- ella did not share any allele with S. alnetella, S. luteella and S. microtheriella.
