Résumé

Sibling species pairs of sweat bees (Halictus confusus andH. tumulorum) and pine sawflies (Neodiprion pratti andN. maurus) were surveyed for genetic variability using enzyme electrophoresis. Levels of heterozygosity were found to be within the ranges earlier recorded for Hymenoptera. Expected heterozygosities were not significantly higher in the sawflies than in the sweat bees. Estimates of genetic identity between the sibling species were not lower than those generally found for diplodiploid insect species: no evidence was found for an increased rate of evolution in these haplodiploids. Genetic identity data among populations ofH. confusus and betweenHalictus species were within the range expected for conspecific populations and sibling species, respectively. InNeodiprion all genetic distances were low but the two populations ofN. pratti had similar genetic distances as each did toN. maurus, indicating the necessity for further systematic studies of the genus.
