Abstract

There are 78 species of Anastrepha in Brazil (Zucchi, 1988), out of 193 reported by Norrbom (1985). These species infest preferably native fruits and are distributed throughout the country (Malavasi et al., 1980). Three Anastrepha species occurring in Brazil, A. fraterculus, A. obliqua, and A. sororcula, might be considered of economic importance. They cause damage to commercial fruits and their geographical distribution is wide.
