Abstract

The mitochondrial DNA phylogenies of closely related forms of mosquitoes from the Culex pipiens complex and of strains of the endosymbiotic bacteria Wolbachia pipientis were compared. Based on the cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene polymorphism, six mitochondrial haplotypes and four W. pipientis groups were discovered in mosquitoes from geographically remote populations. A strict correlation between the COI type and the type of W. pipientis proves the stable coinheritance and distribution of both cytoplasmic components in the examined mosquito populations and suggests either the absence or rarity of horizontal transfer of the symbionts in the Culex pipiens complex.
