<p>Allozyme variability at nine loci of Palaearctic and Nearctic populations of Ochlerotatus dorsalis was&nbsp;determined. Estimates of genetic variability showed that the Palaearctic population ranked higher than the&nbsp;Nearctic population in percentage of polymorphic loci (P: 0.77; 0.33), the mean number of alleles per locus (A: 3.3; 1.8) and value of mean heterozygosity (Ho: 0.263; 0.059). In addition to the lack of identical alleles at Est-6&nbsp;locus, genetic differentiation of Palaearctic and Nearctic populations was due to differences of allele frequency&nbsp;variances at Had, Idh-2 and Gpi loci.</p>
