Table 2 Summary statistics on variation at eight microsatellite loci for the sand fly Lutzomyia vexator collected at the University of California Hopland Research and Extension Center site in northern California. If the locus displayed a significant deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (P < 0.00625, Bonferonni correction), the origin is given as a surplus of heterozygotes (+) or a deficit (−)
