Abstract

New host records of Anastrepha spp. (Diptera: Tephritidae) reared from 2 wild fruit species collected in Campeche, Mexico, are provided. Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann) and A. ludens (Loew) were reared from Talisia olivaeformis (H. B. K.) Radlk, and A. fraterculus and A. striata Schiner from Zuelania guidonia (Sw.) Britton & Millsp. Specimens of the braconid larval parasitoid, Doryctobracon areolatus Szepligeti, were recovered from the T. olivaeformis fruits, and the eucoiline larval parasitoid Odontosema albinerve Kieffer was reared from Z. guidonia.
