Host plant associated genetic differentiation is a common phenomenon in phytophagous insects, but the degree to which such associations sequentially drive diversification at higher trophic levels is not as well understood. A recent study examining neutral molecular markers in Hyalopterus aphids revealed that genetic structure in this genus is strongly determined by primary host plant use (Prunus spp.). In this paper, we take a similar approach to determine whether this host plant specificity… CONTINUE READING
