Abstract To investigate the phylogenetic relationships and molecular evolution of α-amylase (Amy) genes in the Drosophila montium species subgroup, we constructed the phylogenetic tree of the Amy genes from 40 species from the montium subgroup. On our tree the sequences of the auraria, kikkawai, and jambulina complexes formed distinct tight clusters. However, there were a few inconsistencies between the clustering pattern of the sequences and taxonomic classification in the kikkawai and… CONTINUE READING
