Abstract
    Nei genetic distances between Florida and North Carolina populations of bay scallops, all putatively Argopecten irradians concentricus, are greater than distances between the North Carolina population and populations of A. i. irradians from New York to Massachusetts. The subspecies A. i. concentricus is probably untenable. Evidence for a subspecies A. i. taylorae in Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico is discussed.
