Interpretive Summary: Fall armyworm is a significant agricultural pest in the United States, affecting most notably sweet corn and turfgrass. Two strains exist that differ physiologically and behaviorally, but are morphologically indistinguishable. Polymorphisms within the fall armyworm Triose phosphate isomerase gene (Tpi; EC 5.3.1.1) were characterized and used to develop a PCR-based method for discriminating fall armyworm strains. The strain-specific haplotypes were assigned Genbank accession numbers GQ411913-GQ411916.
