The Drosophila buzzatii Patterson & Wheeler cluster (repleta group) includes seven species: D. buzzatii Patterson & Wheeler, D. koepferae Fontdevila et al. D. serido Vilela & Sene, D. seriemaTidon-Sklorz&Sene,D.borboremaVilela&Sene,D. sp.DandD. sp.B.Theseßies arewidely distributed in South America outside the Amazon region. The systematics of this cluster has been based on chromosomal inversions and the aedeagus is used to identify species. These species use necrotic cactus tissues as breeding… CONTINUE READING
