Dacus ciliatus Loew, 1862 - (lesser pumpkin fly)
This fruit fly is found in most parts of Africa and in tropical and subtropical parts of western and central Asia, up to Mynmar in the east. It attacks mainly cucurbits and can be a problem on fruits like cucumber, squash or melon.
After completing their development, the larvae leave the fruit and pupate in the upper layer of the soil. The adults have a body length of 9-10 mm, brownish with yellow patches. For an identification guide see the EPPO Bulletin (2018).
