Drosophila (Dorsilopha)

The subgenus Dorsilopha was described by Sturtevant (1942) as a subgenus of Drosophila containing a single species, D. busckii. Recently, two additional species have been described from Burma (Toda, 1986), bringing the total number of taxa in this subgenus to three. Remsen and O’Grady (2002) placed this subgenus close to the genus Zaprionus, similar to its placement in other molecular phylogenies.
