Wild Hosts of Frugivorous Dipterans (Tephritidae and Lonchaeidae) and Associated Parasitoids in the Brazilian Amazon
We report for the first time Simaba guianensis Aubl. (Sapindales: Simaroubaceae) as a host of Tephritidae, i.e., Anastrepha fraterculus and Anastrepha parishi. Also we report new hosts for species of Neosilba. Finally we report new associations between parasitoid hymenopterans and Anastrepha species.
