Pomegranates are attacked by invasive fruit flies of the family Drosophilidae including the African fig fly, Zaprionus indianus. This species is reported for the first time from North-East Algeria reared from pomegranate fruits from two commercial pomegranate orchards. This vinegar fly is an opportunist that uses both fallen fruits and damaged fruits still on the pomegranate tree as breeding substrates. We report percent infestation of fruit of Z. indianus and of several other pomegranate insect pests.
