Odontosema Kieffer, 1909
There are at least two described species in this genus, but until recently, all rearing records have been associated either with O. anastrephae Borgmeier or with undetermined species. Wharton et al (1998) and Ovruski et al (2000) provide a useful summary of known information.

Most commonly recorded from Anastrepha striata and A. fraterculus in guava and other plants in the family Myrtaceae, but also reported from Ceratitis capitata and other Anastrepha spp. infesting citrus and, more rarely, coffee.
Biology and Behavior
Host location by Odontosema albinerve was examined by Guimaraes and Zucchi (2004).
