The main bulk of adult esterases in the olive fruit fly Dacus oleae (Gmel) is controlled by two autosomal and independent genes, gene A and gene B. Gene A synthesizes an acetylcholinesterase and gene B a pseudocholinesterase or a lipase. Both genes are highly polymorphic in natural populations. More than 15 active alleles plus one silent allele have been found for gene A; more than 10 active alleles plus one silent in gene B.
