Using the data on 71 individual sequences of the gene for the mitochondrial cytochrome-c-oxidase subunit one, molecular and phylogenetic characterization of the Baikalian amphipod, Gmelinoides fasciatus (Crustacea, Amphipoda), was performed. Interspecific polymorphism was demonstrated. Four main amphipod populations, Southeastern, Southwestern, Northern, and Central, were distinguished. A low level of genetic diversity typical of Southwestern population was revealed. For its explanation, the bottleneck hypothesis was proposed.
