Technical Abstract: The recent increase in observance of citrus infested with A. suspensa in Florida has raised questions regarding host-specificity of certain populations and genetic diversity throughout its geographic distribution. Phylogenetic analyses of the mitochondrial COI gene from A. suspensa collected at different geographical locations throughout Florida and the Caribbean show similar sequence diversity within and among all populations. However, using eight microsatellite loci, preliminary data show allelic diversity within and between populations from the current distribution.
