  • Males of an undescribed species of Cuterebra bot fly defend territories along ridge tops in the Sonoran desert of central Arizona. The most consistently occupied site, an 18 m2 territory at the peak of a ridge, was usually defended by a single male for the entire (2–2.5 h) flight period of the morning. An average of five other males visited the peaktop territory each day from mid-February to early June and engaged in chases with the resident before departing. The resident male was very likely… CONTINUE READING
