Migration of the Bush Cricket Decma fissa in Southern China

Understanding the process of species historical dynamics can help us to reveal their ability and ways to face with environmental changes. Although there has been a large amount of research focusing on phylogeography of insects, few studies have focused specifically on the Mconematinae species which is the largest subfamily in Tettigoniidae.
In the current study, we proposed a phylogeography work of Decma fissa. It is the most widely distributed species of the genus Decma occured in southern China. The experimental results show that this species was occurred in South China and with the great genetic diversity. During the LGM, the three main lineages were not adversely affected, and most of suitable living areas were reserved.
