In 1927 the writer made a number of fruit fly surveys for the United States Department of Agriculture. In Argentina the West Indian fruit fly was found in fruits grown in the North and Northwestern Provinces. The Mediterranean fruit fly was taken in the Province of La Rioja, and it is also recorded as having been found in the past in the province of Buenos Aires. In southern Spain grapes were still found infested with the Mediterranean fruit fly in 1927, but tomatoes were not found so attacked either in Spain or in the Canary Islands.
