Bactrocera frauenfeldi (Schiner) - (mango fly)

This fruit fly prefers a tropical environment and is found in Papua New Guinea and several Pacific Islands, e.g. Solomon Islands, Micronesia and Palau. In 1974 it was also detected from Cape York, the northern tip of Australia, close to New Guinea and since then it has spread south to other parts of Queensland, up to Townsville. Common hosts are guava, mango and beach almond (Terminalia).
