Two Drosophila species, D. buzzatti and D. aldrichi, coexist on several species of Opuntia cacti in Australia, primarily on O. tomentosa and O. streptacantha in the northern part of the cactus distribution, and on O. stricta in the south. Thorax length of field-collected adults was less, and the variance in length greater, than that for flies reared on… CONTINUE READING
