Abstract

Mango, Mangifera indica (Anacardiaceae), is a crop cultivated

pantropically. There are, however, many other Mangifera spp

(“mango relatives”) which have much more restricted distributions and are poorly

known but have potential to produce mango-like fruits in areas where mangoes do

not grow well or could be tapped in mango breeding programs. Because of the

restricted distribution of many of the Mangifera spp, there has

also been limited data collected on susceptibility of their fruits to

infestation by tephritid fruit flies which is important to know for concerns

both for quality of production and for quarantine security of fruit exports.

Here, we report on natural field infestation by the oriental fruit fly,

Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera: Tephritidae), of two mango

relatives native to Indonesia: Mangifera casturi and

Mangifera lalijiwa. Rates of infestation of fruits of these

two Mangifera spp by tephritid fruit flies have not previously

been reported.
