We investigated pupa distributions of D. simulans, D. buzzatii, D. melanogaster, D. immigrans and D. hydei on a number of natural breeding sites. Pupae of all five species showed aggregated distributions, which prompted us to examine these aggregations in a more detail for two species that commonly co-occur in breeding sites, D. simulans and D. buzzatii. We found that pupae of both species tend to be aggregated in conspecific clusters. Subsequent experiments revealed that both species are… CONTINUE READING
