Wolbachia belonging to Alphaproteobacteria are transovarially transmitted bacteria responsible for reproductive alterations in a wide range of arthropods. In natural populations of the butterfly Eurema hecabe, there are two different types of Wolbachia-infected individuals. Individuals singly infected with Wolbachia strain wHecCI exhibit strong cytoplasmic incompatibility, whereas those doubly infected with wHecCI and wHecFem exhibit feminization. Here, we examined the infection frequencies and… CONTINUE READING
