Divergence analysis at species level in mulbeny was conducted on morphological,
anatomical and reproductive traits. Based on these traits the spedesare grouped
into clusters. Moms alba alone fonned individual cluster for all the traits whereas
M. laevigata fonned seperate cluster for morphological and reproductive traits. M.
laevigata fonned cluster with M. bombycis for anatomical traits. M. indica and M.
sinensis are grouped in one cluster for reproductive and morphological traits except
anatomical traits exhibiting close association with each other. M. macroura and M.
rotundiloba are grouped in one cluster for anatomy and reproductive traits except
morphological traits which indicates their close association. Other species fonned
cluster with each other in different traits.
