Abstract

After the first record of Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in Brazil in 2013, this insect pest was able to spread through several Brazilian regions. This power of dissemination is probably linked to the invasive biology and polyphagous habit that D. suzukii has shown in several countries, including Brazil. In this study, we recorded the infestation of acerola fruits (Malpighia emarginata Sessé & Moc. Ex. DC) (Malpighiaceae) by D. suzukii and discuss its status as a potential pest of this fruit.
