Fourteen species of Tephritidae are newly recorded from Ontario, and alternative format keys are provided to the 31 genera and 73 species of fruit fly now known from, or likely to occur, in the province. Standard dichotomous keys to genera, and simplified field keys to genera and species are provided. Keys are illustrated with approximately 700 color photographs, and species treatments are supplemented with multiple identification aids, including Ontario distribution maps for each species. To aid in identification of immature stages, we have included sequence data (DNA barcodes) for 41 of the 73 species examined.

Although best known because of their importance as agricultural pests, Tephritidae are also worthy of attention as generally attractive flies with intricate wing patterns and interesting mating and defensive behaviours. The taxonomy of the North American species is relatively well known, and the entire North American fauna was recently reviewed by Foote et al. (1993), who included distributional data and maps showing 42 species and 19 genera ranging into Ontario. We here review the Ontario fauna, primarily on the basis of specimens in the University of Guelph Insect Collection (DEBU), the Canadian National Collection (CNCI), the Lyman Entomological Museum (LEM), and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROME). The Ontario records in Foote et al. (1993) represent only about 60% of the fauna; we now recognise 67 species and 30 genera in the province, significantly more than previously thought but still a manageable number compared to the roughly 4550 valid species within almost 500 genera of Tephritidae described worldwide.

The keys in Foote et al. (1993) are thorough and richly illustrated, but are necessarily complex because they cover all 300 North American tephritid species. The keys herein are relatively simple because they are limited to the 73 species that occur, or are likely to occur, in the province of Ontario. More than 700 colour photographs are used to support a technical key adapted from Foote et al. (1993), as well as a field key designed for the identification of genera using a hand lens or macro photographs.

Although the keys included in this paper use a variety of characters, wing patterns are particularly important, and colour wing photos are included for all species. Whole specimen photographs are also included, since many species have a distinctive habitus that can confirm identifications. Host data has been included wherever possible, as host information can often expedite speedy and reliable identification.

DNA barcoding (Hebert et al. 2003), a recently developed approach to animal identification, is of potential value to the rapid detection of pest tephritid species, especially immature life stages that may be difficult to identify using morphological characters. DNA barcodes (standardised cytochrome c oxidase 1 sequences) are provided here for 40 of the the 67 Ontario tephritid species as an adjunct to traditional morphological tools for tephritid identification. In order to identify any unknown specimen, barcoding requires a reference database of known DNA sequences for comparison; the barcodes included herein contribute to that reference database for the Tephritidae.

Material & Methods

Morphological Work

Character photos were taken using a Microptics Digital Lab XLT imaging system utilizing a Canon EOS 1 Ds camera and Microptics ML-1000 flash fibre optic illumination system. The computer freeware CombineZ ( was used to combine multiple photos taken at different focal points into high-resolution images. Pinned specimen habitus shots, plates and some character shots were taken using a Nikon D70s digital camera, a Nikkor 105mm Macro lens, and a Nikon SB800 flash unit. Live habitus photographs were taken using Nikon D70 or D2X cameras, with 105mm or 60mm lenses and various flash combinations. Photos were processed using Adobe Photoshop CS3 (AP CS3) for Windows; the online web pages were designed and built in Microsoft Powerpoint 2003. Further work on the web pages was done using Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Dreamweaver.
Most specimens used in pinned habitus shots are from the University of Guelph Insect Collection, although some specimen photos were of specimens borrowed from the CNCI and LEM. Specimens used for photos have been labeled accordingly and deposited.

Genetic Analysis

Total genomic DNA was extracted from a single leg according to the protocol developed by Ivanova et al. (2006). A 658-bp region near the 5 terminus of the CO1 gene was amplified using primers LepF1 5' -ATTCAACCAATCATAAAGATATTGG-3 and LepR1 5' -TAAACTTCTGGATGTCCAAAAAATCA-3.
PCRs were carried out in 96-well plates in 12.5- l reaction volumes containing 2.5 mM MgCl2, 5 pmol of each primer, 20 M dNTPs, 10 mM Tris HCl (pH 8.3), 50 mM KCl, 10–20 ng (1–2 l) of genomic DNA, and 1 unit of TaqDNA polymerase using a thermocycling profile of one cycle of 2 min at 94°C; five cycles of 40 sec at 94°C, 40 sec at 45°C, and 1 min at 72°C; followed by 35 cycles of 40 sec at 94°C, 40 sec at 51°C, and 1 min at 72°C, with a final step of 5 min at 72°C. Products were visualized on a 2% agarose E-Gel 96-well system (Invitrogen), and samples containing clean single bands were bidirectionally sequenced by using BIGDYE 3.1 on an ABI 3730 DNA Analyzer (Applied Biosystems). Contigs were assembled by using SEQUENCHER 4.0.5 (Gene Codes).

Sequences, trace files, and field data are available in the Teph (file name) file in the Completed Projects section of the Barcode of Life Database (BOLD;; Ratnasingham and Hebert, 2007). Additional collection information is deposited in the University of Guelph Insect Collection Database and all sequences have been deposited in the GenBank database (CO1: accession nos. EU484466–EU484568). Sequence divergences were calculated by using the K2P distance model (Kimura, 1980) and an NJ phenogram (Saitou & Nei, 1987) was created (as implemented in BOLD) to provide a graphic representation of the among-species divergences. A table of specimens sequenced for DNA barcoding has been included (Appendix I).

DNA Barcoding

The Utility of DNA Barcoding for Specimen Identification in Tephritidae

COI sequences (DNA Barcodes) were obtained for 128 specimens (out of 202 specimens attempted, see Appendix I), representing 41 species in 22 genera. Of these 128 successful specimens, 44 yielded full DNA Barcodes (658bp), 59 yielded near-complete DNA Barcodes (561bp or more), and 25 specimens yielded sequences of less than 350bp.

When sequences were compared using a neighbor-joining phenogram (Appendix II), most, but not all, specimens formed distinct clusters which accurately reflected morphological species. Two clusters incorrectly “identified” morphologically distinct specimens. Euaresta festiva (TEPH012, TEPH098) clustered with a single Euaresta aequalis specimen (TEPH010) and a single Euphranta canadensis specimen (TEPH014), despite remaining disjunct from the main Euaresta aequalis and Euphranta canadensis clusters. All sequences in this Euaresta festiva cluster were longer than 601bp, so we postulate a possible contamination of the TEPH010 and TEPH014 sequences.

A single Rhagoletis cingulata specimen (TEPH 123) was clustered with Campiglossa sabroskyi (TEPH0117), while the remaining R. cingulata specimens successfully clustered together away from the Campiglossa group. This anomaly is possibly an artifact of insufficient data, as the TEPH123 sequence is only 288bp, or perhaps a contaminant.

The sequences identified above as potential cases of contamination were annotated in the BOLD database to reflect these concerns.

In multiple instances, DNA barcodes of closely related species provided insufficient information for distinguishing between these species (i.e. Tephritis candidipennis and T. puraEutreta frontalis and E. novaeboracensis; Urophora affinis and U. cardui). Further taxon sampling and inclusion of more specimens may be required for differentiating these species using DNA Barcodes or use of another marker may be necessary.

The objective of the sequencing component of this project was to contribute to the DNA Barcoding database by providing CO1 sequences based on morphologically identified specimens. This was done to facilitate the potential use of a sequence database as an identification aid, and not to test species concepts and taxon limits. With this in mind, our limited dataset does show that most genera and species of Ontario Tephritidae possess distinct DNA Barcode clusters, and that most haplogroups reflect morphologically defined taxa. The database of fruit fly DNA Barcodes is currently being expanded through an international collaboration of researchers under the Tephritid Barcode Initiative.

bulla: a dark, blister-like bubbling of the wing membrane.
coxa: basal leg segment
flagellum: the third and largest part of the antenna, divided into a large first flagellomere and a hair-like arista (made up of barely distinguishable separate flagellomeres)
femur: third leg segment (the first of the two long parts of the leg); located between the trochanter and the tibia.
geniculate: elbowed.
labellum: the terminal part of the proboscis (derived from the lower lip, or labium).
oviscape: tube-like tip of the female abdomen; used to sheath the ovipositor.
pleuron: the lateral part of the thorax.
proboscis: the visible mouthparts projecting below the head.
reticulate: net-like pattern.
scutumscutellum: The visible top of the thorax (the mesonotum) is divided into a main part (scutum) and a small, shelf-like hind part (scutellum).
seta: bristle.
setae: multiple bristles.
setulae: small setae.
subquadrate: almost square in shape.
tarsus: the distal (last) leg segment, subdivided into 5 tarsomeres.
tergites: dorsal plates of the abdominal segments.
tibia: fourth leg segment, located between the femur and the tarsomeres.
tomentum: dense coat of short hairs.
trochanter: second leg segment, located between the coxa basally and the femur distally.
vertex: the dorsal-most region of the head containing the ocellar triangle.
