The yeast flora found in the major substrates of Drosophila mojavensis and in larval guts was studied both qualitatively and quantitatively. Quantitative studies show that, in four of the five substrates tested, the larvae did not contain a random sample of the yeasts present in the substrates. One widely distributed cactus yeast, Pichia cactophila, was typically in greater frequency in the larvae than in the substrates. Another cactus yeast, Candida sonorensis, typically exhibited the opposite… CONTINUE READING
