Molecular characterization of fire ants, Solenopsis spp., from Brazil based on analysis of mtDNA gene cytochrome oxidase I.

Martins C, de Souza RF, Bueno OC - J. Insect Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: The results revealed complete geographical coherence and polyphyly for the Solenopsis invicta Buren and Solenopsis saevissima species groups, which confirms the diversity of the genera.It also suggests the possibility that reproductively-isolated populations occur, resulting in the evolutionary process of speciation.No predominant haplotype was found in the populations analyzed, but some were more prevalent.

f02_01: Network of haplotypes of mtDNA from the 114 Solenopsis populations studied. The red dots indicate hypothetical ancestors. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: Of the 114 analyzed colonies, 72 had a unique haplotype sequence of the COI mitochondrial DNA, which are illustrated in the network (Figure 2). Table 1 includes the species identification, the collecting locales (georeferenced), and the corresponding haplotypes. All COI sequences generated in this study have been deposited in the GenBank database under accession numbers JN808775 to JN808838 (see Table 1).
