Phylogeny: Drosophila genus
The organization of the Sophophora subgenus has been taken from:
Lemeunier, F. et. al. (1986) "The melanogaster Species Group". The Genetics and Biology of Drosophila. vol 3e. Academic Press:New York.p.147-256.
Antopocerus subgenus was formerly placed in the Drosophila genus, however, the following reference now places it within the Idiomyia genus:
Grimaldi, D.A."A phylogenetic, revised classification of Genera in the Drosophilidae (Diptera)" Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History. New York: New York . American Museum of Natural History,1990.
