The Ethiopian fruit fly, Dacus ciliatus, is an important pest of cucurbits, which recently invaded the Middle East. The genetics and cytogenetics of D. ciliatus have been scarcely studied. Such information is, however, an essential basis for understanding the biology of insect pests, as well as for the design of modern control strategies. We report here the mitotic karyotype and detailed photographic maps of the salivary gland polytene chromosomes of this species. The mitotic metaphase… CONTINUE READING
