CABEZAS, María Beatriz; LLANGARI, Luz Marina  and  RAFAEL, Violeta. Description of four new species of the Drosophila fasciola subgroup, repleta group (Diptera, Drosophilidae) in two cloud forests of Ecuador. Iheringia, Sér. Zool. [online]. 2015, vol.105, n.4, pp.383-392. ISSN 0073-4721.

The current study describes four new members of the Drosophila repleta group, collected in two cloud forests. The new species were grouped into the D. fasciola subgroup, based on thorax pigmentation patterns and male genitalia morphology.Drosophila inti sp. nov., D.nigua sp. nov. and D.yambe sp. nov. were collected using banana baits, whileD. carvalhoi sp. nov. was collected fromAnthurium sp. inflorescences. The abdominal pigmentation and shape of the edeago of D. nigua sp. nov.,D. yambe sp. nov. y D. carvalhoi sp. nov. suggest a close relationship between them, whereas D. inti sp. nov. would be more closely related toD. linearepleta Patterson & Wheeler, 1942.
