Subject: West Indian Fruit Fly does not seem to be present in Florida
Publicada: August 30, 2001
Source: Florida Entomologist (84): 320-321

The West Indian Fruit Fly, Anastrepha obliqua, has been commonly believed to be present in Florida, and various distribution maps and other publications reflect this assumption. However, after a thorough comparison of identification records and museum specimens, Entomologist G.J. Steck recently came to the conclusion that there is, in fact, no confirmed evidence of the presence of this species in Florida since 1935. He suggests that the eradication efforts carried out between 1931-36 were successful, and that "Florida is completely free of the West Indian fruit fly and probably has been so for the past 65 years".
