The stick insect Clonopsis gallica is a morphologically stable obligate parthenogen, ranging from North Africa to southern Europe, with a variable karyotype (54–57 chromosomes), considered diploid or triploid. Clonopsis gallica origin and relationships with Clonopsis algerica and Clonopsis maroccana remained unknown. Our Moroccan samples shared the same egg and body patterns and, in addition to C. gallica (2n = 54, XX), comprised the new bisexual Clonopsis sp. 1 (2n = 35/36, X0/XX) and the new… Expand
