Abstract:Observations on the seasonal history and habits of Dasiops alveofrons McAlpine (Diptera: Lonchaeidae), a new pest of apricots in California, are presented along with a brief discussion of other lonchaeid flies of economic importance as primary insect pests. The fly attacks immature and mature fruits in a manner similar to that of the true fruit flies (Trypetidae). Characters serving in the identification of the various life stages arc listed.
