Electrophoretic data for 15 enzymes encoded by 18 loci were analysed in samples of larval lampreys from two southern hemisphere species (Geotria australis and Mordacia mordax). Low values for Nei genetic distance coefficients for all loci in populations of G. australis from Western Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand (0.0013 to 0.0058) suggest that adults may intermix over distances greater than 4000 km. The average heterozygosity for four populations of G. australis (0.086) was much greater than for two populations of the far less widely distributed M. mordax (0.021).
