Abstract

Abstract.

Herein, we report the results of study of species in Primorsk and Khabarovsk regions of Russia. Three species of the group: , , and were identified by molecular taxonomic diagnostics for the first time in Russia. Surprisingly, , which earlier was considered the only species of in Russian Far East, was not observed. We analyzed nucleotide variation in the 610-bp fragment of the 5′ end of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) region. All species possessed a distinctive set of COI sequences. A maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree was constructed for members of the hyrcanus group. The examined group members could be divided into two major subgroups: subgroup 1 ( and ) and subgroup 2 (, , and ), which were found to be monophyletic.
