A Review of Fruit Flies of the Genus Rhagoletis (Diptera, Tephritidae) of Iran and Bordering Countries, with the Key to Species

The genus Rhagoletis Loew includes many economically important pests of fleshy fruits. Six species of this genus occurring in Iran and bordering countries are briefly reviewed, and a key to species is provided. Rhagoletis flavicincta Enderlein is recorded for the first time from Iran.

Род Rhagoletis Loew включает в себя многочисленных экономически важных вредителей плодовых культур. Дан краткий обзор 6 видов рода, встречающихся в Иране и соседних странах. Составлена таблица для определения этих видов. Rhagoletis flavicincta Enderlein впервые отмечен из Ирана.
