Abstract: Host plants are listed for 76 species of Bactrocera and four species of
Dacus, mainly based on field collection and incubation of over 20,000 samples
in emergence boxes. Flies were bred from 241 host species, belonging to 139
genera in 63 families of Angiosperms. The majority of the samples were collected
in eleven countries and territories under the umbrella of the Regional Fruit Fly
Projects in the Pacific (RFFP): Cook Islands, Fiji Islands, French Polynesia, Fed-
erated States of Micronesia, Nauru, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa,
Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. Previously published dubious host records
not confirmed under the RFFP are listed and discussed.
