Abstract

The import of mangos from India into the United States is forbidden because of the risk of introducing Sternochetus mangiferae (F.) and Dacus dorsalis[Bactrocera dorsalis] Hend. Observations indicated that fruits infested by S. mangiferae could be distinguished from uninfested ones by the hardened secretion remaining attached to them at the sites of oviposition.
