The results of morphologic and hybrid analyses of the feature of the male reproductive system of sibling species in the virilis group were presented. Bristles appeared on the surfaces of male genitals (aedeagus). The occurrence of a specific expression of the examined feature in the phyllades of D. virilis group, the correspondence of both the number and distribution pattern of the bristles on surfaces of the aedeagus and developmental temperature in D. virilis and D. lummei, as well as the link between feature and sexual behavior, have been shown. Dominance of D. lummei phenotype in the interspecies D. virilis × D. lummei was found. The interspecies hybrids D. virilis and D. lummei were used for a genetic analysis of the variability of the examined feature. The significant influence of chromosomes 2 and 6 on the number of bristles on the aedeagus in hybrid males was shown. Furthermore, the correspondence between the effects of the autosomes 2 and 6 on the variability of the examined feature and the genetic status of the other chromosomes (the effect of interaction between genetic factors, chromosomes here) was revealed. The adaptive value of the examined feature related to the involvement in the formation of isolating barriers at the copulation stage is under discussion.
