Chromosomal and molecular evidence for presence of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) poseidon (Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae) in Caucasus region.

Lukhtanov VA, Tikhonov VV - Comp Cytogenet (2015)

Bottom Line: We show how combination of chromosomal and molecular markers can be applied for proper species identification in Agrodiaetus Hübner, 1822 blue butterflies.Using this approach we provide first evidence for presence of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) poseidon (Herrich-Schäffer, [1851]) in Georgia.

Male karyotype of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) poseidon from Georgia. a sample 2014VL57, metaphase I, n = 19 b sample 2014VL62, metaphase II, n = 19. Bar = 10 μm.

Figure 3: Male karyotype of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) poseidon from Georgia. a sample 2014VL57, metaphase I, n = 19 b sample 2014VL62, metaphase II, n = 19. Bar = 10 μm.

Mentions: The haploid chromosome number n=19 was found in MI and MII cells of three studied individuals (2014VL57, 2014VL58, 2014VL62) (Fig. 3). All chromosome elements formed a gradient size row. The karyotype contained no exceptionally large or small chromosomes. In this respect, the population from Akhaltstikhe is indistinguishable from populations of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) poseidon from Amasya (de Lesse 1963) and Artvin (Kandul and Lukhtanov 1997), but differs from Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) putnami (n=26) (Lukhtanov and Dantchenko 2002b).
