A considerable amount of work has been published on the natural enemies of the olive fly, Bactrocera oleae (Rossi). All of the parasitoid species that have been associated with olive fly in one way or another are linked through this page. The olive fly was placed in the genus Dacus for many years, and has also been called Daculus oleae. Rossi and Gmelin both presented descriptions of this species in 1790, but recent work indicates that authorship should be attributed to Rossi rather than Gmelin, as had been commonly done in the past.
