ABSTRACT We report results of field collections, laboratory rearing, and behavioral observations of tephritids belonging to the tribes Acanthonevrini and Gastrozonini in Malaysia and Thailand. The focus of the study was on general biology, seasonal history, mating, oviposition, larval biology, larval habits, and microhabitats. Host association with bamboo was unequivocally established for 31 species. Adult flies fed on liquids oozing from plants or other sources. Most species developed in the… 
Reproductive Behavior and Basic Biology of the Oriental Bamboo-Inhabiting Anoplomus rufipes and a Comparison with Frugivorous Dacinae Fruit Flies
The reproductive behaviors and mating systems of the fruit-infesting species of the Dacinae tribes Ceratitidini and Dacini are increasingly well understood, while in the non-frugivorous tribe
Life history and description of the larva of Acrotaeniostola spiralis ( Diptera : Tephritidae : Dacinae : Gastrozonini ) , an Oriental fruit fly inhabiting bamboo twigs
TLDR
The external morphology and cephalopharyngeal skeleton of the third instar larva of the genus Acrotaeniostola is described for the first time, and the main distinguishing characteristics found for A. spiralis larvae are their very long and slim body shape and their reduced facial mask lacking oral ridges, probably adaptations to life in the very narrow bamboo twigs.
Larval descriptions of five Oriental bamboo-inhabiting Acroceratitis species (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacinae) with notes on their biology
TLDR
Third instar larvae of the genus Acroceratitis Hendel from North Thailand are described for the first time and factors influencing spatial utilization of larval resources, preference for upright shoots as breeding substrate, larval behavior, types of bamboo damage caused by different species and attraction to sweat and urine in the adults are discussed.
Larval descriptions of fi ve Oriental bamboo-inhabiting Acroceratitis species ( Diptera : Tephritidae : Dacinae )
TLDR
Third instar larvae of the genus Acroceratitis Hendel from North Thailand are described for the first time and factors infl uencing spatial utilization of larval resources, preference for upright shoots as breeding substrate, larval behavior, types of bamboo damage caused by different species and attraction to sweat and urine in the adults are discussed.
The First Biological Portrait of Stalk-Eyed Fruit Flies: Life History, Reproductive Biology and Host Use Patterns in Pelmatops spp. (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
The life history, reproductive biology, and host use patterns of Pelmatops spp.
New and confirmed records of fruit flies (Diptera, Tephritidae) from Italy
TLDR
Italian records of nine species of the family Tephritidae (Diptera) are provided, and four species are recorded from Italy for the first time, with confirmed and supplemented with host plant data and other collection data.
Pest categorisation of non‐EU Tephritidae
TLDR
A group pest categorisation of non-EU Tephritidae, a large insect family containing well-studied and economically important fruit fly species and little studied species with scarce information regarding their hosts and species that do not feed on plants, found that 1,087 species do not satisfy all criteria to be considered as potential quarantine pests for the EU.
Expulsion and consumption of male ejaculates by promiscous female Euxesta eluta and Euxesta mazorca (Diptera: Ulidiidae)
TLDR
Ejaculate consumption appears to be widespread in the genus Euxesta, and it is possible that females obtain nutrients from this behaviour while exerting some control over egg fertilization.
A new species of Magnimyiolia Shiraki (Diptera: Tephritidae: Trypetinae) and new records of Acanthonevrini from India.
TLDR
Two species of subfamily Phytalmiinae, Ectopomyia baculigera Hardy and Ptilona conformis Zia (Acanthonevrini) are recorded for the first time from India.

BIOLOGY AND DESCRIPTION OF THE THIRD INSTAR LARVA AND PUPARIUM OF ICHNEUMONOPSIS BURMENSIS HARDY ( DIPTERA : TEPHRITIDAE : DACINAE : GASTROZONINI ) , A BAMBOO-BREEDING FRUIT FLY FROM THE ORIENTAL REGION
TLDR
The association of I. burmensis with bamboo indicates that Ichneumonopsis belongs to the primarily bamboo-inhabiting tribe Gastrozonini, however, the strong differences between the larval characters of this genus suggests that this genus has an isolated position within this group.
Biology of the Oriental bamboo-inhabiting fly Felderimyia gombakensis and observations on mating trophallaxis in Felderimyia (Insecta, Diptera, Tephritidae, Phytalmiinae, Acanthonevrini).
TLDR
During courtship males of all Felderimyia species produce a nuptial gift made of a white viscous secretion, which is deposited on the surface of a bamboo culm and eaten by the female prior to, during and often also after copulation.
Species diversity and seasonal fluctuation of fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) in bamboo stands in Taipei.
TLDR
Results of this study support colored traps can be used as a tool for monitoring non-frugivorus fruit flies, and their effectiveness can be enhanced if they are used in combinations of yellow or green traps with white or blue traps.
Evidence for a Marking Pheromone Deterring Repeated Oviposition in Apple Maggot Flies
TLDR
It is suggested that deposition of this marking pheromone is an important factor mediating uniformity in egg dispersion among available fruits, and that the amount of fruit surface area marked following a single oviposition is related to the amount to food or space required by one larva to grow to maturity.
Drosophila Cuticular Hydrocarbons Revisited: Mating Status Alters Cuticular Profiles
TLDR
It is suggested that focusing on individual compounds will not provide a satisfactory understanding of the evolution and function of chemical communication in Drosophila and that the chemical conversation between male and female flies is far more complex than is generally accepted.
