A GUIDE TO IDENTIFICATION OF SOME COMMON FRUIT FLIES (Bactrocera spp.) (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE: DACINAE)
One of the problems faced by tephritiditologists in India and Asian countries is the proper identification of fruit ﬂy species (Diptera : Tephritidae). Among the fruit ﬂies, the genus Bacrmcem is commonly encountered in parapheromonc (methyl eugenol or cue lure) traps. The objective of this paper is to present a key that would enable one to easily identify species that usually come into traps. This has quarantine implications also, as it helps to work out the spread or introduction of fruit ﬂies to new areas.
