Based on the data recorded during each sampling campaign, including the locality, temperature, time of year, and number of individuals collected, several conclusions were drawn about the development of this invasion in southern Brazil.
The drosophilid fauna (Diptera, Drosophilidae) of the transition between the Pampa and Atlantic Forest Biomes in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil: first records

Embora os trabalhos com assembleias de drosofilideos (Diptera, Drosophilidae) tenham se tornado relativamente abundantes nas ultimas decadas, ainda existem ambientes a serem explorados. O presente…
Structure of Drosophilidae Assemblage (Insecta, Diptera) in Pampa Biome (São Luiz Gonzaga, RS)
The Brazilian Pampa (the southernmost end of the country) is currently a highly modified environment because of increasing agricultural activities. In many places, only small parts of grasslands…
Taxonomic survey of Drosophilidae (Diptera) from mangrove forests of Santa Catarina Island, Southern Brazil.
The present survey is the first attempt to characterise the fauna of Drosophilidae in mangrove forests, an environment typical of tropical coasts worldwide, and suggests that drosophilids are differently affected by environmental pressures operating inMangroves.

The results suggested a negative correlation between the abundances of Drosophila cardinoides Dobzhansky & Pavan, Dosophila maculifrons Duda, Drosphila melanogaster Meigen, and Zygothrica vittimaculosa Burla with temperature, which is reflected in the distribution of these species within Brazil.

Despite Brazilian pampas being the richest when compared with Uruguay and Argentina, the three countries presented the same problem: huge areas with a barely surveyed Drosophilidae fauna, which stresses the necessity and importance of creating new conservation areas to preserve the natural biodiversity of pamps.

Assemblages of drosophilids (Diptera, Drosophilidae) in mangrove forests: community ecology and species diversity
It is suggested that mangrove forests are acting as sink habitats for the drosophilids populations, with an unexpectedly high diversity, considering the very low floristic diversity and the harsh conditions of the environment.
