Davis, J. J. (1955) A note on chromosomes of some Queensland Dacinae (Trypetidae, Diptera). Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 12 (4). pp. 161-173.



Larval salivary gland and metaphase chromosomes of the following species were studied: Afrodacus jarvisi (Tryon), Austrodacus cucumis (French), Diplodacus signatifer (Tryon), Strumeta bryoniae (Tryon), Strumeta cacuminata Hering, Strumeta humeralis (Perk.), strumeta tryoni (Frogg.). All species except A. jarvisi, for which 2n = 14, have 6 pairs of somatic chromosomes. The aceto-orcein squash technique proved unsatisfactory for detailed analyses.
