    The Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Ceratitis capitata or Medfly) is considered the most important agricultural pest in the world. The Medfly has spread throughout the Mediterranean region, southern Europe, the Middle East, Western Australia, South and Central America and Hawaii.

    Pest Profile: The Mediterranean fruit fly is a short, squat fly about 1/4 inch in length (Fig. 1). It has a blackish thorax marked with silver; a tan abdomen with darker stripes extending across the abdomen; and clear wings with two light brown bands across the wing, another along the distal front edge, and gray flecks scattered near the base. Citrus greening is spread by a disease-infected insect, the Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri Kuwayama or ACP), and has put the future of America's citrus at risk. Infected trees produce fruits that are green, misshapen and bitter, unsuitable for sale as fresh fruit or for juice. Most infected trees die within a few years.

In the case of a heavy infestation these eggs are so numerous .1 Citrus production represents a major fruit crop in the Mediterranean as well as in the rest of the world, and citrus genetic resources are the cornerstone of citrus research, cultivation and breeding programs.

To develop these activities, ex-situ germplasm collections were constructed in several countries.
