생식형불일치 유형에 따른 국내 프루텔고치벌(Cotesia plutellae)의 유전적 위치


Genetic Identity of a Korean Isolate of an Endoparasitoid, Cotesia plutellae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Among Reproductive Incompatibility Types

박정아, 김용균


  Reproductive incompatibility is an important factor to select a specific biological control agent for successful augmentation of the corresponding endogenous population. An endoparasitoid, Cotesia plutellae (Kurdjumov), is an effective control agent to diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) and has been known to be classified into two groups in terms of reproductive incompatibility. This study analyzed an Korean population of C. plutellae in terms of morphological characters and mitochondrial DNA marker, which did not match with either of two reproductive incompatibility groups. These results suggest that a Korean population of C. plutellae can be involved in a novel reproductive group. For any augmentation program of C. plutellae in Korea, reproductive incompatibility should be seriously considered to select a particular exotic population.
