Abstract:

A molecular key based on the sequence of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the ribosomal cistron was used for the identification of common Trichogramma (Hymenoptera: Trichogramma tidae) species found in agricultural field of Alhassa oasis in Saudi Arabia. The aligned sequences were checked using BLAST program at GenBank. The sequences of the three ITS region were the same and shared identities ranged from 98.3 to 99.4% against all Trichogramma cacoeciae sequences at the GenBank. To our knowledge, it is the first report of distinguished Trichogramma cacoeciae in Alhassa, Oasis Saudi Arabia.


Keywords: Trichogramma, ITS2, Sequence, Spacer region of rDNA, PCR
