ResumenThe PIM357 satellite DNA family is present in 26 Pimelia taxa (Tenebrionidae, Coleoptera) with endemic congeneric species from the Canary Islands showing higher interrepeat variability than continental ones. In this paper, we compare the repetitive DNA sequences of a Canarian species that has distinct subfamilies of repeat units, P. radula ascendens, with another without such subfamilies, P. sparsa sparsa. The chromosomal localization of the repeat units and the comparison of the variability of randomly cloned monomers to the one estimated by comparing repeat units from dimers and trimers suggest the absence of satellite subfamilies in P. sparsa sparsa. Hence, the repeat units of this species seem to be uniformly and randomly distributed throughout all chromosomes out of one chromosomal pair. On the contrary, P. radula ascendens shows four divergent subfamilies of repeat units supported by several diagnostic nucleotide substitutions. These subfamilies seem to form four distinct repeat units: monomer subfamily 1, monomer subfamily 4 and two higher-order units (dimer linking subfamily 1 and 4, and dimer linking subfamily 2 and 3). Moreover, monomers of subfamily 1 are present in three chromosomal pairs only. We discuss the effect of different potential factors acting in the concerted evolution and the genomic organization of stDNA sequences in these taxa.
