Abstract

In this study, species complex of Turkish

 

Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius)

(Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) populations was determined by PCR-based

DNA analysis. According to phylogenetic analyses, the

 

B. tabaci samples

have been identified within three generic groups. A major part of the samples

belonged to two invasive species, either Middle East

 

–Asia Minor 1

(MEAM1) or Mediterranean (MED). In addition to these two invasive

species, several samples collected from greenhouses and cotton fields have

been found to be related to Middle East

 

–Asia Minor 2 (MEAM2), which is

the first record of Turkish

 

B. tabaci species complex.
