  • ABSTRACT Phylogenetic analyses, from polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified 12S rRNA and 18S rRNAgene sequences from cochineal insects of the genus Dactylopius present in Mexico, showed that D. ceylonicus, D. confusus, and D. opuntiae are closely related. D. coccus constitutes a separate clade, and D. tomentosus is the most distantly related. Bacterial 16S rRNA sequences from all the Dactylopius species sampled showed a common &bgr;-proteobacteria, related to Azoarcus, also found in eggs… CONTINUE READING
