Two groups of reproductively isolated genetic forms is identified by the variability of nonspecific esterases: A. fuscus-A and A. fuscus-B. Group of A. fuscus-A comprises 2 genotypes and A. fuscus-B – 6 genotypes.


Keywords: Arion subfuscus sensu lato, allozyme variability of esterase, genetic structure of populations
