Abstract : In the Americas and Caribbean, the lethal yellowing (LY) phytoplasma causes a disease of palms transmitted by the leafhopper Myndus crudus (family, Cixiidae), which may not be the sole vector. In Vanuatu and Ghana LY-like diseases also are rampant in coconut palm but M. taffini is thought to be a vector. Recently, high mortality in disease-resistant palms has occurred widely. The availability of a molecular marker would make possible the tracking of distribution and dispersal behaviors of Myndus species in relation to epidemic and non-epidemic areas. We employed PCR and mtCOI primers [F-C1-J-2195, R-L2-N-3014] to amplify from DNA extracts a 780 bp fragment. Phylogenetic analysis sorted putative Myndus spp. into three main clades: adiopodoumeensis (Ghana), crudus (Caribbean), and taffinii (Vanuvatu), the latter which comprised two sister groups. A fourth Myndus spp. from Oaxaca MEX grouped uniquely from other New World collections and herein has been identified as a new, putative vector species. (Texte intégral)
