Mérida-Xmatkuil km 15.5, 97100, Mérida, Yucatán, México The genus Anastrepha (Diptera: Tephritidae) includes the principal pests of many fruit crops in the New World (Foote et al. 1993). Host associa- tions have been recorded from 44% of the de- scribed species, but new wild hosts frequently are found (Aluja et al. 2003). In the Mexican state of Campeche, 10 species of Anastrepha are known (Hernández-Ortiz 1992; Hernández-Ortiz et al. 2002; Tucuch-Cauich et al. 2008). Most records were obtained from label data on specimens de- posited in entomological collections or from mon- itoring systems with McPhail traps (baited with liquid protein), and little information has been generated from wild host fruits in the region.
