Female heterogamety was discovered 112 years ago in the magpie moth, Abraxas grossulariata, but its sex chromosomes remained unknown. The study of chromosomes in this iconic moth and its congener, A. sylvata, revealed a pair of molecularly well-differentiated WZ sex chromosomes in both species. Although these species split only around 9.5 million years ago, their W chromosomes differ greatly, and the results suggest their rapid molecular divergence by independent spreading of female-specific repetitive sequences.
