Carambola fly in Suriname attacks wide range of fruits


Agriculture International 43(9): 252-253
Carambola fly in Suriname attacks wide range of fruits
A fly of the Dacus dorsalis complex of South East Asia, named initially Dacus sp. near dorsalis, was recorded in Surinam in 1985. Its preferred host plants were Averrhoa carambola and Syzygium samarangense, although guava, mango and Malpighia glabra were also regularly infested. Other cultivated fruits were occasional hosts but the fly was not found on any wild fruits. The distribution of the species in Surinam is described.
