Abstract

Aricia artaxerxes issekutzi imagos were collected from eight localities in two regions in Northern Hungary (Bükk Mountains and Aggtelek Karst region) in 1999 and 2000. Enzyme polymorphism was analysed at 16 enzyme loci using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. In the analysis of the data, F-statistics was computed and the total genetic variation was partitioned into within and between population components. Nei's genetic distances were calculated and UPGMA dendrogram was constructed on the basis of the distance matrix. Hierarchical F-statistics and AMOVA were computed to study the pattern of genetic differentiation among the samples. PCA analysis was also carried out using the allele frequencies of the samples. The Hungarian populations of A. artaxerxes issekutzi exhibited a high level of enzyme polymorphism. Both the dendrogram and the results of PCA indicated a clear differentiation between the Bükk and Karst regions. Most parameters of polymorphism and also the level of differentiation among the local populations were similar in the two regions. Nevertheless the average number of alleles per locus was significantly lower in the samples of the Bükk Mts than those of the Karst ones. In addition, the Bükk populations possessed a significantly lower portion of the species allele pool compared to the Karst ones. It was mostly the consequence of genetic drift due to the small population sizes in the Bükk Mts.
