Summary of Invasiveness Top of page Bactrocera dorsalis is a highly invasive species.

While not established in Florida, oriental fruit fly and relatives, such as Bactrocera correctaare regularly trapped in this state. Annual Review of Entomology, Upon emergence, adult flies must be fed with sugar and water for several days to allow hardening and full colour to develop, before they can be identified.

Scutum generally black with lateral vittae present and medial vitta absent; yellow scutellum, except for basal band which is usually very narrow; abdomen with a medial dark stripe on T3-T5; dark laterally but form of marking varies from species to species.

Abdominal tergites with medial dark stripe on T3-T5 and a transverse dark line on T3, with separate dark areas on anterolateral margins of T3-T5. One or more of the features that are needed to show you the maps functionality are not available in the web browser that you are using.


However, avocado, mango and papaya are the most commonly attacked.

A field guide to the management of economically important tephritid fruit flies in Africa.

This was probably the result of accidental introduction from Papua New Guinea.

The external part of the anterior respiratory organs, the spiracles, located one on each side of the pointed or head end of the larva, has an exaggerated and deflexed lobe at each side and bears many small tubercles.

Risk of Introduction Top of page The major risk is from the import of fruit containing larvae, either as part of cargo, or through the smuggling of fruit in airline passenger baggage or mail. Robinson AS, Hooper G, eds.

The introduction was probably accidental, as the first flies were detected in the airport neighbourhood.
