Abstract:

The studies on the biodiversity of aphidophagous syrphid flies were made in temperate fruit ecosystem including apple, pear, peach and plum orchards of Kashmir during 2013 and 2014. Nineteen species of syrphid flies belongs to 2 sub families, 4 tribes and 12 genera were identified from fruit orchards of Kashmir. Among these, Eristalis tenax followed by Eoseristalis cerealis, Eristalis interruptus and Episyrphus balteatus were pre-dominant species of syrphid flies in fruit orchards of Kashmir. Among all orchards, the highest distribution and relative abundance of syrphid flies were recorded in apple orchard followed by pear orchard and lowest in peach orchard. Species diversity of aphidophagous syrphid flies were recorded greater in fruit orchard of Harwan of district of Srinagar and Species richness of aphidophagous syrphid flies were recorded greater in fruit orchard of Warpora of district of Baramullah of Kashmir.
