Abstract

The Japanese orange fly, Bactrocera tsuneonis (Miyake) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is one of the most destructive pests of citrus. The pest has formerly been recorded in Guangxi, Guizhou, Hunan, Sichuan, Taiwan, and Yunnan in China. Here, we report the first occurrence of B. tsuneonis in Guangdong, the southernmost province of mainland China. The adults were trapped from late Apr to late Sep in 2016. A total of 27 adults (13 males and 14 females) of B. tsuneonis were captured.
