Bactrocera musae (Tryon, 1927) - (banana fruit fly)
This fruit fly is found in Papua New Guinea and in north-eastern parts of Queensland, Australia. The main host is bananas, where the females lay their eggs in full-size but unripe (green) fruits. Other fruits like papaya or guava are also attacked. In surveys, up to 20% of bananas examined have been infested with this species (SPC Fruit Fly Project).
