AbstractWhen necessary allowances are made for conformity with current-taxonomy of the Drosophilidae, it is seen that 15 species, of which 11 are Drosophila and 4 non-Drosophila Drosophilidae, have previously been reported from Puerto Rico. Recent, but not extensive, collecting in this Island has resulted in capture of 27 species of Drosophilidae. Eight species of non- Drosophila Drosophilidae and 15 species of Drosophila in the recent collections have not previously been reported from Puerto Rico. Among these unreported forms are two new species of Drosophila that are described herein. The number of species of Drosophilidae now reported from Puerto Rico compares favorably with that reported from peninsular Florida south of the 29th parallel.
