Resumo: A case of incipient allochronic speciation through phenological shift in the pine processionary moth is studied. Two sympatric populations are reproductively isolated by the timing of adult emergence. Larval development is partially simultaneous, although life stages occur in different seasons. Adult flight was monitored in the field for several years and locations. Genetic markers were used to obtain genetic assignment and population differentiation according to the phenology. Results evidence high genetic distance between the two populations. The genetic structure revealed to be stable in time. In general, sampled individuals could be correctly assigned to their reference populations. Ecological differentiation was assessed in the egg and larval stages. Larvae from the shifted population revealed higher tolerance to temperatures above 36ºC. Ecological divergence was observed in the egg stage, namely in load, size, coverage and parasitism . The phenology patterns of adult emergence were studied on the two sympatric populations and their artificially obtained hybrids, aiming at determining phenotypic heritability of the emergence pattern. Results indicate high heritability, and the hybrids reveal intermediate adult phenology. Microsatellite genotyping allowed the discrimination of hybrids. Results here presented clearly show the occurrence of an incipient allochronic speciation process with ecological differentiation in course
