Host suitability of wild cucurbits for melon fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett, in Hawaii, with notes on their distribution and taxonomic status


Host suitability of wild cucurbits for melon fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett, in Hawaii, with notes on their distribution and taxonomic status



Proceedings of the Hawaiian Entomological Society 30: 37-52



Previous confusion in botanical and entomological literature concerning the names of certain wild hosts of Dacus cucurbitae (Bactrocera cucurbitae) in Hawaii is discussed, and names currently accepted as correct are provided. The correct name for both wild and cultivated forms of bitter melon is Momordica charantia. Most previous references to Sicyos sp. and 'Sycos' hosts for B. cucurbitae in Hawaii probably represent misidentification of Cucumis dipsaceus.
