Abstract: 

Geometric morphometrics is known as rather new approach to study similarities and differences between morphological structures in biological populations. This approach was born after debates on some failings of descriptive morphology and traditional morphometrics in distinguishing morphologically similar groups and then was used by researchers in different science including Entomology. In this study, in order to investigate on morphological variation among geographic populations of carob moth Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Zel.) on figs in Iran, infested figs were collected from 4 sites and larvae inside were reared to adulthood. Using geometric morphometric techniques, differences in shape of wings among populations were shown geometrically. MANOVA and ANOVA showed significant variation of wing shape and size among tested populations. Then canonical variate ordination of tested populations was shown and allometric relationships between shape and size were detected. Then probable influent factors and existence of genetic basis of these variations were discussed.
