Graham RI, Wilson K. Correction: Male-killing Wolbachia and mitochondrial selective sweep in a migratory African insect. BMC Evol Biol. 2013;.
ABSTRACT: Following publication of our work (Graham and Wilson, BMC Evol Biol, 2012, 12:204), it was brought to our attention that seven of the mitochondrial COI haplotypes described in this manuscript as Spodoptera exempta haplotypes were in fact other species. As a result, we cannot now support one of our original conclusions suggesting that the Spodoptera genus was not monophyletic. However, it should be clearly stated that the main findings of the article, namely that the presence of three Wolbachia species appear to be driving a mitochondrial selective sweep within S. exempta, still holds true. Indeed, the new analysis strengthens the extent of the host mitochondrial skew (94.3% prevalence of haplo1).
