The taxonomic relationship of Saturnia walterorum and S. mendocino is discussed in terms of laboratory hybrids, larval morphology, comparative life history, and phenetics of intermediate populations. Results indicate that these moths represent different taxa, but are best described as semispecies. The two taxa freely interbreed in the laboratory. Hybrid F x females with walterorum as the female parent had normal fertility and fecundity; females from the reciprocal cross were viable but sterile… Expand
