The cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton is not usually examined in routine identifications because the larval specimen must be dissected before this character can be examined.

Caribbean fruit fly-free zone certification protocol in Florida Diptera; Tephritidae. The writer has never seen any specimens collected in the field that agreed with these hybrid specimens, and it is rather doubtful that such crossing takes place in nature.

Tephritidae in guava and carambola grove soils. However, they are captured by traps emitting ammonia. An expanded detection system of trapping eventually showed both A. Robinson AS, Hooper G, eds. Sign in via your Institution Sign in.

An intensive field survey showed that the larvae were attacking a fairly extensive list of host plants similar to the hosts of the Puerto Rican strain of A. As in most other Anastrepha spp.

The first method involves limited spraying of groves and adjacent areas with pesticide baits.
