Thread subject: :: Drosophila ID

I have barcoded one the flies (COX1 sequence). It matches (100%) Drosophila mercatorum. This species is thought to be native to South America. No wonder I had a hard time to put a name on it. D. mercatorum has a cosmopolitan distribution and it seems to have reached Switzerland (this would be the first mention to my knowledge)
