- ... A segment of the nuclear 28S rRNA gene was compared among six species of Lygus [Lygus hesperus (Knight), Lygus keltoni (Schwartz), Lygus borealis (Kelton), Lygus elisus (Van Duzee), Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois), and Lygus vanduzeei (Knight)]. The DNA sequences were separate into three main groups. The LL group contains L. lineolaris and L. vanduzeei. Group LBLE is composed of L. elisus a ...
