Article

The phylogenetic relationships of Tephritis Latreille, one of the largest genera of true fruit flies, are poorly understood due to the large number of species, lack of reliable morphological characters and difficulties in identification. In the present study we used two datasets to address these problems: one with 35 species of the genus Tephritis...
Article
Species of the genus Tephritis usually have the wing pattern with dark rays on veins R4+5 and M connected to the preapical dark spot or to each other (often called the “apical fork). Some species, however, have a solid apical crossband (Korneyev, 2013), whereas others have an isolated pair of apical spots. Specimens with the latter morphological ch...

The genus Tephritis Latreille 1804 belongs to the tribe Tephritini of the subfamily Tephritinae. With over 160 described species currently assigned to this genus, Tephritis is one of the largest genera of the family Tephritidae, occurring mostly in the Holarctic region. of Tephritis species usually feed in flower heads of asteraceous plants and can be used in biological control. Genus is quite hard for identification, because of similarity in species morphology, also there are almost no modern keys for identification (only for Western Europe, and Near East). Also the phylogeny of the group is studied quite poorly.
