First record of the fruit fly Bactrocera (Bactrocera) nigrofemoralis White & Tsuruta (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Bangladesh

Mahfuza Khan, Luc Leblanc, MA Bari, Roger I Vargas

The presence of fruit fly Bactrocera (Bactrocera) nigrofemoralis White & Tsuruta was recorded in Bangladesh for the first time. B. nigrofemoralis was captured in traps baited with sweet orange oil and cue-lure at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment campus, Ganak bari, Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh in March 2015. The fruit fly species was distinguished from similar-looking Bactrocera nigrifacia Zhang, Ji & Chen by the presence of the short and narrow lateral post suttural vittae and the very narrow infuscation on the wing costal band. The abundance of newly recorded fly was also estimated. In total, 153 B. nigrofemoralis were collected from different areas of the campus. The experimental results indicated the potential of essential oil and lures to detect unknown Tephritid fruit flies.
