Recent studies on Afrotropical fruit flies (Tephritidae) have endeavoured to place the known genera of the flower-infesting subfamily Tephritinae into a classification of tribes, subtribes and generic groups, as well as resolve some of the questions of synonymy and nomenclature at generic and specific levels (Hancock 2001, 2003a, b; Hancock et al. 2001, 2003). Such studies form a necessary precursor to an understanding of the biogeography of the group.
