Abstract

The Chinese citrus fly, Bactrocera minax (Enderlein) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is an important insect pest of citrus species which causes significant fruit damage in Nepal, India, Bhutan and China. An attempt has been made to review the biological aspects and management measures of this pest compiling published literatures in the national and international journals, proceedings, reports, newsletter and books. This review highlights the findings on the nomenclature, morphology, distribution, biology of the Chinese citrus fly and provides potential prospect of pest management measures, which are useful to the researchers, policy - makers, citrus growers and extension workers.
