Host shifts followed by specialization can result in sympatric genetic differentiation, and may have fuelled the diversification of phytophagous insects. This study examines a recent colonization of a non‐native host by Prodoxus quinquepunctellus (Lepidoptera: Prodoxidae). Allozyme differentiation was detected among different host feeding populations, yet was nearly absent among similar host feeding populations in sympatry. Geographical patterns of allozyme variation showed a much higher level… Expand
Lack of Evidence for Reproductive Isolation among Ecologically Specialised Lycaenid Butterflies
1. The evolution of reproductive isolation between recently diverged or incipient species is a critical component of speciation and a major focus of speciation models. In phytophagous insects, hostExpand
Geographic host use variability and host range evolutionary dynamics in the phytophagous insect Apagomerella versicolor (Cerambycidae)
TLDR
Investigating field host availability and use across a wide latitudinal range, and performed laboratory studies on insect oviposition preference and larval performance and mitochondrial DNA variation in a phylogeographical framework, revealed three geographic races of A. versicolor with gene flow restriction and recent geographic expansion. Expand
Patterns of genetic structure among populations of an oligophagous pollinating yucca moth (Tegeticula yuccasella).
TLDR
Results suggest that differentiation among T. yuccasella populations on alternative hosts is slight, but gene flow is influenced by both host association and geographic distance. Expand
Genetic architecture underlying host choice differentiation in the sympatric host races of Lochmaea capreae leaf beetles
TLDR
This study explored whether host choice is a genetically determined trait in the sympatric willow and birch host races of the leaf feeding beetle Lochmaea capreae, or whether larval experience influences adult host choice and determined its genetic architecture. Expand
Host-associated divergence and incipient speciation in the yucca moth Prodoxus coloradensis (Lepidoptera: Prodoxidae) on three species of host plants
TLDR
Results of this study indicate that differentiation within P. coloradensis is consistent with the evolution of incipient species affiliated with different host plants, potentially influenced by sex-biased dispersal and female philopatry. Expand
The roles of geography and founder effects in promoting host‐associated differentiation in the generalist bogus yucca moth Prodoxus decipiens
TLDR
Results suggest that the interplay of local adaptation, geography and demography can determine the tempo of HAD, and argue that future studies should include comprehensive surveys across a wide range of environmental and geographic conditions to elucidate the contribution of various processes to HAD. Expand
Host specificity of a generalist parasite: genetic evidence of sympatric host races in the seabird tick Ixodes uriae
TLDR
Results suggest that host‐related selection pressures have led to the specialization of I. uriae and that host race formation may be an important diversifying mechanism in parasites. Expand
LARVAL HABITS, HOST-PLANT ASSOCIATIONS, AND SPECIATION IN NEMATINE SAWFLIES (HYMENOPTERA: TENTHREDINIDAE)
TLDR
The loose connection between collective host ranges and species diversity provides empirical support for theoretical models suggesting that speciation rates are a function of a complex interplay between “intrinsic” niche width and resource heterogeneity. Expand
Tree Hybridization and Genotypic Variation Drive Cryptic Speciation of a Specialist Mite Herbivore
TLDR
It is argued that hybridization and genotypic differences in foundation tree species may drive herbivore population structure, and have evolutionary consequences for dependent arthropod species. Expand
LARVAL HABITS, HOST‐PLANT ASSOCIATIONS, AND SPECIATION IN NEMATINE SAWFLIES (HYMENOPTERA: TENTHREDINIDAE)
Abstract Adaptive radiations consist of two intertwined processes, diversification of species and diversification of their ecological niches, but it is unclear whether there is a causal link betweenExpand

TLDR
Results indicate that the population differences in nature are evolved rather than host induced, a pattern that could theoretically promote further differentiation between the host races. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that host shifts occur frequently in E. editha, are a result of both migration and local evolution, and have not been associated with speciation in these insects. Expand
Genetic differences between host races of Rhagoletis pomonella

Significant differences in allele frequencies between fly populations reared from sympatric apple and hawthorn trees at a field site in Urbana, Illinois, in the United States are reported. Expand
HYBRIDIZATION STUDIES ON THE HOST RACES OF EUROSTA SOLIDAGINIS: IMPLICATIONS FOR SYMPATRIC SPECIATION
TLDR
Evidence is found for disruptive selection for host use, which is a critical assumption of sympatric speciation models, and high survival of F1, F2, and backcross hybrids on some plant genotypes in some years supported the host adaptation hypothesis. Expand
HOST SPECIFICITY AND THE GENETIC STRUCTURE OF TWO YUCCA MOTH SPECIES IN A YUCCA HYBRID ZONE
TLDR
Molecular tools are used to test the morphology‐based hypothesis that the moths pollinating two yuccas, Yucca baccata and Y. schidigera, are distinct species and reveal a high level of migration among widely separated moth populations, predicting that pollen‐mediated gene flow among conspecific yucca populations is considerable.

Genetic differentiation between sympatric host races of the apple maggot fly Rhagoletis pomonella
TLDR
The result confirms that hawthorn and apple flies represent partially reproductively isolated 'host races' and is consistent with a sympatric mode of divergence for these flies. Expand

A method for isolating and evaluating the contribution of host plant‐related natural selection pressures to the reproductive isolation between allopatric herbivore populations is offered. Expand
HOST RACE RADIATION IN THE SOAPBERRY BUG: NATURAL HISTORY WITH THE HISTORY
TLDR
In this century, populations of this native seed‐eating insect have colonized three plant species introduced to North America, providing an unplanned experiment in natural selection of the insect's beak length. Expand
Host fidelity is an effective premating barrier between sympatric races of the apple maggot fly.
TLDR
The results verify that host-associated adaptation can produce reproductive isolation as a correlated character (a key premise of sympatric speciation) and represents one of the few or perhaps only example in animals where the intra-specific isolating effects of specific phenotypes have been quantified in nature.

BEHAVIORAL EVIDENCE FOR HOST‐RACE FORMATION IN EUROSTA SOLIDAGINIS
TLDR
Behavioral evidence that Eurosta solidaginis, a stem‐galling tephritid fly, has formed host races on its two goldenrod hosts, Solidago altissima and S. gigantea, suggests that the populations may be in an intermediate stage of sympatric speciation. Expand
