ABSTRACT
We used a set of 48 polymorphic microsatellites derived from Drosophila virilis to infer phylogenetic relationships in the D. virilis clade. Consistent with previous studies, D. virilis and D. lummei were the most basal species of the group. Within the D. montana phylad, the phylogenetic relationship could not be resolved. Special attention was given to the differentiation between D. americana texana, D. americana americana and D. novamexicana. Significant differences between these three groups were detected by FST analyses. Similarly, a model-based clustering method for multilocus genotype data also provided strong support for the presence of three differentiated groups. This genome-wide differentiation between D. americana texana and D. americana americana contrasts with previous analyses based on DNA sequence data.Heredity (2004) 93, 161-165, advance online publication, 9 June 2004; doi:10.1038/sj.hdy.6800487
