Özet

Altica oleracea and Altica deserticola are different flea beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Alticinae) feeding on different host plants. Morphological variation was studied within both males and females of ten populations of A. oleracea and A. deserticola. 12 out of 15 variables were found to be significant in the model to discriminate between two species. Morphological differences were detected between the sexes, species and populations collected from different localities.
