Genetic evidence for interspecific hybridization between Parnassius nomionand Parnassius bremeriin nature is presented. To demonstrate hybridization between these species, RAPD analysis was used.

Abstract

Genetic evidence for interspecific hybridization between Parnassius nomionand Parnassius bremeriin nature is presented. To demonstrate hybridization between these species, RAPD analysis was used. By testing 25 decamer primers, three and two diagnostic markers were revealed for P. nomionandP. bremeri, respectively. Out of 28 animals examined, 4 were shown to be interspecific hybrids. According to the distribution of diagnostic markers, the interspecific hybrids were intermediate with regard to the parental species. Ecological and biological characteristics of two butterfly species that promote their hybridization in nature are discussed.
