F1 hybrid mortality is asymmetric and embryonic. a Complete F1 hybrid reduction occurs between N. vitripennis males (strain 13.2) and N. longicornis females (strain R3). Data are represented as mean number of surviving F1 females (diploid) ± standard error (SE), Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) test, *P < 0.05. b The factor responsible for complete F1 hybrid reduction in N. vitripennis is common to N. vitripennis strains 13.2 and 12.1T that shared an ancestor in 1996. Conversely, the factor responsible for complete F1 hybrid reduction in N. longicornis is specific to the Utah-derived strain R3, but not UT. Data are F1 females ± SE, K-S test, ***P < 0.0001, c Complete F1 hybrid reduction is due to hybrid mortality during embryonic development. Data are shown as mean number of F1 eggs and 1st instar larvae ± SE, K-S test, ***P < 0.0001
