Genetic analysis shows that Rubus vikensis is a distinct species with a disjunct distribution

Ryde, Ulf LU (2010) In Nordic Journal of Botany 28(2). p.246-250
Abstract
Rubus vikensis A. Pedersen ex G. Wendt (sect. Corylifolii) was recently described from a restricted area in north western Scania, Sweden. In this investigation, I show that the same species occurs also on the Onsala peninsula in northern Halland and on a single locality in the middle of Halland. It has 35 chromosomes in all parts of the distribution area. Moreover, I show by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis that R. vikensis is a distinct and well-defined species, clearly separated from the morphologically similar R. wahlbergii, with which it shares the chromosome number.
