Isoenzyme electrophoresis of Rhodnius species: a phenetic approach to relationships within the genus.

Author information

Seventeen samples of Rhodnius, representing at least eight different species according to their morphological characteristics, were submitted to multilocus isoenzyme electrophoresis, revealing 17 different loci. A phenetic analysis of the enzyme data not only clustered the species in accordance with their geographical origin but also revealed interspecific relationships that differed from those expected from the morphology.
