Comments
The Mexican Plant Protection Service in 1992 declares that records of A. fraterculus in Mexico are erroneous, arising from confusion with A. obliqua. PNKTO no. 18 suggests that the form in Mexico is a distinct form of the species, differing in host preferences and possibly morphologically.

EPPO Reporting Service (96/092), trapped in large numbers over several years in Chiapas state.

EPPO Reporting Service (98/037): was among 4 Anastrepha spp. studied for their hymenopteran parasites in Veracruz state.
