INTRASPECIFIC SYSTEMATICS OF GENUS NEZARA (HEMIPTERA: PENTATOMIDAE) INFERRED FROM ANALYSIS OF THE MITOCHONDRIAL CYT B GENE SEQUENCES

In the present study, the genetic divergence among genus Nezara of family Pentatomidae collected from different localities of Northern India was estimated using partial Cyt b gene sequences. Intraspecific divergence ranged from 0.2% to 7.2% with an average of 4.16±3.2% while the interspecific divergence between N. viridula and N. antennata was ranged from 6.1% to 9.8% with an average of 7.54 ± 1.2%. Mitochondrial Cyt b gene sequences clearly showed the overlapping of intra and interspecific divergence in the genus Nezara as the intraspecific divergence in N. viridula of the present study was quite high.
