Primary sequence of 3-terminal fragment of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene has been determined in 12 Drosophila species of the virilis group. The functionally important elements in secondary structure of the RNA product were defined. The region corresponding to the peptidyltransferase center has been localized. Variation of the 3'-terminal region of 16S rRNA gene has been described in 12 species of the virilis group. Phylogeny of the Drosophila virilis species group is discussed.
