This paper presents the first report of the occurrence of Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in South America. Several samples were collected during various seasons in 2012 and 2013, and a significant number of individuals were obtained and identified. Based on the data recorded during each sampling campaign, including the locality, temperature,(More)
Environmental variables such as temperature and rainfall can directly affect the community structure of dipterans. Seasonal oscillations in the abundance of species of Drosophilidae reflect differences in how tolerant populations are to climatic conditions. Over a period of 14 months, we collected samples in two habitats in the Pampa biome in the(More)
The species composition and the relative abundance of species in an insect community can vary in time and space for many reasons, including climatic variables and habitat preferences. Drosophilids were collected each quarter from April 2011 to April 2012 (five collections in all) in a natural area of the Pampa biome, considering three environments: open(More)
