ABSTRACT

Amblyseiinae is the largest subfamily in Phytoseiidae, with more than 1,500 nominal species. However, the relationships of this subfamily was confused. In order to improve the classification system of Amblyseiinae, the mitochondrial CO1 gene sequence of seven Amblyseiinae species, collected from four provinces of China, were sequenced, and another seven Amblyseiinae species mt CO1 gene sequenced were download from GenBank. And the phylogenetic relationship between the Amblyseiinae genus and the subspecies was studied. The results showed that four species of Kampimodromus and two species of Euseius clustered into two different branches, but the branch of 8 species of Amblyseius and Neoseiulus was chaotic. It indicated that the species of Neoseiulus and Amblyseius should be assigned carefully. The results could not only reveal its phylogenetic relationship and provide molecular evidence for the evolution, but also provide a better way to identify phytoseiid species in citrus.
