Temporal fluctuations in patterns of linkage disequilibrium and heterozygote deficiency of chromosomal polymorphisms were analysed in four populations of the sibling species Simulium ornatipes A. Each population was subdivided into two groups, A1 and A2, in which Hardy-Weinberg frequency expectations are largely met. The possible causes of linkage disequilibrium and heterozygote deficiency in the pooled populations, i.e. migration, selection and non-random mating, are discussed. It is concluded that the two groups are reproductively isolated entities.
