A.F. Safonkin and T.A. Triseleva (2008)
Pheromone composition, the mtDNA COI locus variation, and phylogenetic relationships in leafrollers of the tribe Archipini (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
Russian Journal of Genetics 44 (4), 413-417
Abstract: The groups of leafroller species belonging to the tribe Archipini (Archips crataegana, A. rosana, A. xylosteana-Choristoneura diversiana, Ch. fumiferana-A. podana, Pandemis cerasa, Hedya nubiferana-Cydia pomonella) were divided based on the sequences of the mtDNA COI locus. Within these groups, the pheromone blend composition in the species studied reflected the patterns of using cis-, cis/trans-, or only trans-isomers of the pheromone components in the process of chemocommunication. It was demonstrated that polymorphism of the locus investigated in A. podana was associated with inbreeding, while in A. rosana it was associated with the geographic distribution of the species.
