Drosophila bromelioides Pavan and Cunha, 1947

Drosophila bromelioides Pavan and Cunha, 1947: 24 . Val (1982): redescription (male genitalia).

DIAGNOSIS: Yellow to pale brown, average thorax length 1.02 (♂) to 1.14 (♀) mm; arista with 4-2 dorsal-ventral branches; most similar to bromeliae Sturtevant but differs most notably by the aedeagal shaft in bromelioides nearly straight in lateral view (vs. acutely bent, sometimes at 90°); distiphallus slightly shorter, wider, anteroventral margin more lobate in bromelioides ; oviscapt 300–320 µm, spermatheca higher than wide, introvert ca. 0.6× capsule length.

DESCRIPTION: See Pavan and Cunha (1947) (external, internal soft organs, immatures, chromosomes), redescription by Schmitz (2010) (especially genitalia).

TYPE: Not reported by Pavan and Cunha (1947).

DISTRIBUTION: Southern Brazil, states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Parańa, São Paul, Goías, Minas Gerais, Bahia (summarized in Schmitz, 2010) .

COMMENTS: A highly polyphagous species, taken/reared from 42 species of flowers in 16 families ( Schmitz, 2010). Like D. bromeliae , this species can, with care, be cultured on standard lab medium ( Schmitz, 2010).
