Data from: Fine-scale spatial and temporal population genetics of Aedes japonicus, a new US mosquito, reveal multiple introductions

Dina Fonseca, Andrea Widdel, Sven-Erik Spichiger, Michael Hutchinson & Laura Kramer
The newly introduced mosquito Aedes japonicus has expanded from its original range in Northeastern Asia to twenty-two US states (including Hawaii) plus Canada and northern Europe. Our objectives were to test an earlier hypothesis of multiple introductions of this species to the Northeastern US, and evaluate putative temporal changes in genetic makeup. Using a panel of seven microsatellite loci, we confirmed the existence of two abundant genetic forms in specimens originally collected in 1999-2000 (FST...
