Evidence so far available indicates that in the Culex pipiens complex there exists a genetic system with unique properties not comparable with those of the chromosomal gene system and probably involved in a mode of speciation peculiar to this complex. In a long series of backcrosses it has been shown that probably every Culex pipiens population contains a factor that is inherited through the cytoplasm, the only phenotypic expression of which is the crossability or non-crossability… CONTINUE READING
