Phylogenetic Relationships Among Species of the fraterculus Group (Anastrepha: Diptera: Tephritidae) Inferred from DNA Sequences of Mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase I
TLDR
The results of COI indicate the placement of A. acris Stone, an unplaced species, in the fraterculus group and the monophyly of the aforementioned group are indicated, which is corroborated by data obtained in this study. Expand
Trichogramma in Brazil: feasibility of use after twenty years of research
TLDR
The parasitoid can be used to control key pests in cotton, sugarcane, stored grain, vegetables, corn, soybean, and tomato and has stimulated the creation of companies to commercialize it in Brazil, thus more easily transferring this technology to users. Expand
Species Diversity of Frugivorous Flies (Diptera: Tephritoidea) from Hosts in the Cerrado of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
TLDR
Thirty-five fruit species were sampled in seven municipalities located in the cerrado of the state of Mato Grosso do Sul in a study to evaluate the infestation by frugivorous flies, and notogramma was the only genus of Otitidae obtained. Expand
Egg Parasitoids in Agroecosystems with Emphasis on Trichogramma
TLDR
The results show clear trends in diversity and hosts of Trichogramma in the New World, with emphasis in South America, and in biological control and Integrated Pest Management, which has implications for future generations of scientists and policymakers. Expand
Fruit flies (Diptera, Tephritidae) and their associations with native host plants in a remnant area of the highly endangered Atlantic Rain Forest in the State of Espírito Santo, Brazil
TLDR
Among 33 associations between host plants and fruit flies, 20 constitute new records, including the records of host plants for A. fumipennis Lima and A. nascimentoi Zucchi, and their implications for rain forest conservation efforts and the study of evolutionary relationships between fruit flies and their hosts are discussed. Expand
Diversity and Hosts of Trichogramma in the New World, with Emphasis in South America
TLDR
All the 94 Trichogramma species recorded in the Americas and their habitats were listed and a list of the South American species with their respective host insects, distribution and associated plants was updated. Expand
Fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritoidea) infestation in citrus in the State of São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
The sweet oranges were the most susceptible to Tephritoidea infestations in the state of Sao Paulo. Expand
Eucoilinae species (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) parasitoids of fruit-infesting dipterous larvae in Brazil: identity, geographical distribution and host associations
TLDR
Bionomic observations suggest that A. pelleranoi is the species most frequently associated with tephritid flies and probably, the most useful as a biological control agent. Expand
Larval endoparasitoids (Hymenoptera) of frugivorous flies (Diptera, Tephritoidea) reared from fruits of the cerrado of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul , Brazil
TLDR
A five years survey of endoparasitoids obtained from the larvae of frugivorous Tephritidae and Lonchaeidae flies in Brazil finds D. areolatus was the most abundant and frequent parasitoid of fruit fly species, as was L. anastrephae in Neosilba spp. Expand
