Ovipositional substrates used by Calyptrate Diptera in Tijuca forest, Rio de JaneiroD'AlmeidaJose Mario Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Depto. de Biologia, Laboratório de Biologia e Controle de Insetos Vetores Rio de Janeiro Brasil 061994892261264Twenty seven species of calyptrate muscoids were reared from a forested area of Rio de Janeiro (Tijuca Forest). Substrates for obtaining flies were beef liver, fish, mouse, frog, shrimp, snail carcasses, human faeces, banana and papaya fruits. The most frequent species found were: Fannia sp. (subgroup pusio) (49.9% on shrimp). Hemilucilia flavifacies (95.0% on liver). Phaenicia eximia (49.4% on mouse), Synthesiomyia nudiseta ( 100.0% on fish), Ophyra aenescens (100.0% on shrimp), Oxyvinia excisa (100.0% on faeces), Euboettecheria collusor (52.4% on faeces) and Pattonella intermutans (61.0% on frog).ecologybreeding substratesfliesFull text available only in PDF format.Texto completo disponível apenas em PDF.
