Formatted abstract
The interaction between the Blue Moon butterfly, Hypolimnas bolina, and Wolbachia
has attracted interest because of the high prevalence of male-killing achieved within the species, the
ecological consequences of this high prevalence, the intensity of selection on the host to suppress
the infection, and the presence of multiple Wolbachia infections inducing different phenotypes. We
examined diversity in the co-inherited marker, mtDNA, and the partitioning of this between
individuals of different infection status, as a means to investigate the population biology and
evolutionary history of the Wolbachia infections.
