Brief Summary

Anaprionus Okada, 1990 is a subgenus of the drosophilid genus Zaprionus Coquillett, 1902.[1] It is characterized by the presence of odd number of longitudinal white stripes on the frons and the mesonotum.[2] It contains 12 species in the Oriental and Australasian regions (12 spp.).[3]  Phyogenetic analyses show the subgenus to be polyphyletic, with some species of its species being more related to other drosophilid genera than to the subgenus Zaprionus.[4][5]
