Genetic differentiation among populations of Culicoides variipennis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), the North American vector of bluetongue virus



Genetic differentiation among populations of Culicoides variipennis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), the North American vector of bluetongue virus



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 852: 140-147



Genetic relationships among 24 populations of C. variipennis (from the USA and Canada) were examined using isozyme electrophoresis of 21 protein-encoding loci. Estimates of genetic similarity based on gene frequency differences among populations were consistent with the existence of 3 North American subspecies, C. v. occidentalis, C. v. sonorensis and C. v. variipennis.
