Using starch-gel electrophoresis, 21 different enzymes were examined. Both spp. were collected from unpolluted lentic environments. Different gel systems which were appropriate for the specific enzymes tested for were utilized. Enzymatic polymorphisms between and within species have been documented. Several enzymes, such as alcohol dehydrogenase and superoxide dismutase, were unexpectedly absent in one or both of the spp. Numbers and frequencies of alleles detected for both spp. are given.
