Title: Notes. A Note on the Genus Drosophilella Duda (Diptera; Drosophilidae) 
Author: Wheeler, Marshall R.
Date: 1969-10
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Wheeler MR. 1969. Notes. A note on the genus Drosophilella Duda (Diptera; Drosophilidae). Pac Sci 23(4): 544-545.
Abstract: The generic name Drosophilella was first
published by Duda (1923:25) in the combination
"Drosophilella seminigra n.sp." D. seminigra,
then, is the type species by monotypy.
However, he apparently intended to publish it
as a new genus, with two new species, in
another article, written earlier but published a
year later (Duda, 1924a). The two species
were D. seminigra and D. colocasiae, the former
from Friedrich-Wilhelmshafen (now Madang),
New Guinea, and the latter from Nongkodjadjar,
Java, collected from the plant Colocasia
antiquarum (Schott).
