A review of the Indo-Australian subgenera 'Heminotodacus' drew, 'Paradacus' perkins and 'Perkinsidacus' subgen. n. of 'Bactrocera' macquart (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacinae)
MetadataShow full item record
The Indo-Australian subgenera 'Heminotodacus' Drew (1 species) and 'Paradacus' Perkins (7 species) of 'Bactrocera' Macquart are reviewed and a new subgenus, 'Perkinsidacus' subgen. n., is proposed for two Australasian species: 'Bactrocera banneri' White from Morotai, northern Moluccas and 'B. coracinus' (Drew) [type species] from Papua New Guinea. These three subgenera belong in the 'Zeugodacus' group of subgenera and are distinguished by the presence of 2 pairs of scutellar setae and no medial yellow vitta on the scutum. A key to the ten species placed in these three subgenera is included.
