Accurate identification of cryptic slug taxa of the Arion subfuscus/fuscus complex by PCR-RFLP (Pulmonata: Arionidae)



Accurate identification of cryptic slug taxa of the Arion subfuscus/fuscus complex by PCR-RFLP (Pulmonata: Arionidae)



Journal of Molluscan Studies 72(3): 323-325



This paper presents an easy and convenient molecular marker based on a restriction-fragment length digestion of a PCR-amplified 16S rDNA stretch (PCR-RFLP), which allows practical and reliable identification of the northwestern European evolutionary lineages within the A. subfuscus/fuscus complex. In February-May 2004, a total of 175 A. subfuscus/fuscus individuals of different life-stages were collected in 25 Belgian and one German locality.
