Abstract

Phylogenetic analyses based on the COI gene region, for 19 South African specimens of the fall armyworm (FAW), separated them into two well-supported clades. These clades indicated significant intraspecific variation and support the hypotheses that maize and rice strains of FAW are present in South Africa.
