Aggregated oviposition by Chymomyza amoena (Diptera: Drosophilidae)


, : Aggregated oviposition by Chymomyza amoena (Diptera: Drosophilidae). Experientia (Basel): 459: 893-895

Analysis of apples collected in Virginia and Michigan in 1986 showed that aggregated oviposition by Chymomyza amoena was due to egg clustering, to females being attracted to fruits on which C. amoena females had already oviposited and to variations in fruit attractiveness. Negative bionomial k values supported behavioural similarities among females of this rarely seen species in both states.
