Hybridization studies in the migratory grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes (F.) (Acrididae)



Hybridization studies in the migratory grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes (F.) (Acrididae)



Canadian Entomologist 1233: 417-423



Three subspecies of the migratory grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes are recognized by Gurney and Brooks (1959) who, on the basis of morphology and presence of intergrades in collections, do not consider the taxa sufficiently different to warrant according them species status. Present experiments show that members of distant populations, when crossed, readily produce viable and fertile hybrids of both sexes.
