Intraspecific variation in the cuticular hydrocarbons of the sandfly Phlebotomus perfiliewi from Italy


, : Intraspecific variation in the cuticular hydrocarbons of the sandfly Phlebotomus perfiliewi from Italy. Medical and Veterinary Entomology, 44: 451-457

The cuticular hydrocarbons of P. perfiliewi from representative localities on both sides of Italy show contrasts which support the view of R.D. Ward et al. (1981) [see Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology, 75: 653-661] that there are distinguishable populations of this sandfly on the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian coasts. It is suggested that the Appennine mountains form a barrier between the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian populations. A 3rd distinct hydrocarbon type of P. perfiliewi was detected in Calabria, southern Italy, where contact between the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian types of flies is most likely to occur. P. perfiliewi from a trans-Appennine pass were also of the Calabrian hydrocarbon type. These hydrocarbon contrasts between allopatric populations of P. perfiliewi may result from clinal variation across the Appennines, associated with different host preferences, or they may represent apomictic populations with differential mate recognition systems.

Several strains of Toscana, Arbia and Radi viruses were isolated. The results seem to indicate that am...
