Abstract

Allozymatic diagnosis of four economically important Liriomyza species (Diptera, Agromyzidae).

Abstract

The agromyzids Liriomyza bryoniae, L. huidobrensis, L. sativae and L. trifolii were differentiated using allozyme variation patterns as revealed by gel electrophoresis. Analysis of the variation patterns of larvae, pupae and adults at 15 genetic loci revealed that each species could be identified at all 3 stages of the life cycle. A biochemical key is presented.
