Hybridization and inbreeding effects were tested in 2 populations of a haplo-diploid parasitic wasp,Cothonaspis boulardi. No inbreeding depression was observed. This suggests adaptation of the genome to total homozygosity and the absence of new gene rearrangements which could be lethal after hybridization.
