MOHAN L. AGARWAL & MASAHIRO SUEYOSHI ' Department of Entomology, Rajendra Agricultural University, Pusa (Samastipur)- 848 125, India 1 Department of Entomology, PO Box 37012, National Museum ofNatural History, CE607, MRC169, Washington, DC, 20013-7012 USA 2 Postdocoral Fellow of Research Abroad, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science ABSTRACT. All known Indian fruit fly taxa along with their distributional records and synonyms have been arranged systematically in the present catalogue. This catalogue lists 243 species in 79 genera, which have been arranged in 4 subfamilies and 18 tribes. Key words: Tephritidae, Indian taxa, distribution, synonyms.

Introduction Tephritidae is a large family of predominantly pictured-winged and highly ornamented flies. It includes 4,448 recognized species over the world (Norrbom, pers. comm.). Though the family has been subject of extensive biological and taxonomic investigations in most areas of the world, still we have comparatively little knowledge on the composition of the Indian fruit fly fauna. Different regions in India have vast differences in ecological conditions and it is expected that a number of undescribed fruit fly taxa still exist in India. The fruit fly fauna of northwestern India has affinities with'the Palaearctic fauna, whereas eastern India has many species occurring in other Southeast Asian countries. Indian Fruit flies were listed by Bigot (1892) and Wulp (1896) in the 'Catalogue of the Oriental Trypaenids' and 'Catalogue of the Described Diptera from South Asia', respectively. Bezzi's (1913) monograph is still the most important compilation on Indian fruit fly taxonomy. Senior-White (1924) listed 87 species of fruit flies from undivided India. Kapoor (1970, 1993), and Hardy (1977) in Tephritidae chapter of 'Catalogue of Diptera of the Oriental Region' listed the Indian fruit fly taxa. White & Elson-Harris (1992) published a detailed monograph on fruit flies of economic significance, including some Indian taxa. NoiTbom et al. (1999) published a systematic database coveringall described tephritid taxa at that time. Although it was the most comprehensive catalogue of the Tephritidae to date, some subsequent taxonomic studies have been published dealing with Indian species (Wang, 1998; Drew & Hancock, 1998, 1999; Hancock & Drew, 1999; White & Evenhuis, 1999; Hancock & McGuire, 2002; Tsuruta & White, 2001 and Drew & Raghu, 2002). A book edited by Aluja & Norrbom (1999) also includes valuable contributions pertaining to the taxonomy, phylogeny and behaviour of different tephritid groups. These taxonomic studies changed the nomenclatural status of many tephritid taxa. The purpose of the present work brings together as much as possible of the scattered information on Indian fruit fly taxa in a convenient catalogue form.
