 en Ovipositional Substrates Used by Calyptrate Diptera in Tijuca Forest, Rio de Janeiro
Jose Mario D'almeida


Twenty 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), Euboettcheria
collusor (52.4% on faeces) and Pattonella intermutans
(61.0% on frog).
