The efficiency of crossed immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) for the determination of taxonomic relationships between populations of two different selected animal groups has been investigated employing eight populations of the family Tisbidae and eleven populations of the family Enchytraeidae grown under laboratory conditions. Antisera were raised in rabbits against extracts from two Tisbe and three Enchytraeus populations. The antisera were used in CIE in homologous and heterologous combination with antigens of each population of the two groups. Numbers of heterologous immunoprecipitates were counted and divided by the numbers of the corresponding homologous combination. A decrease in the resulting values (matching coefficients) represents a decrease in the degree of relationship between the populations. The relationship patterns resulting from the CIE analysis showed within the genus Tisbe two pairs of closely related populations: T. holothuriae/T. battagliai and T. gracilis/T. cucumariae. T. bulbisetosa and T. furcata clearly were different species but the position of these species within the genus Tisbe could not exactly be determined. Within the genus Enchytraeus two groups of very closely related populations could be distinguished: (1.) E, F, and G; (2.) C and A. These two groups form a larger group of six closely related populations including also population D. The species E. albidus, E. bigeminus and E. fragmentosus together form another group which is more distant to these six populations. The populations J and B are even more remote from them.
