Abstract


A large number of larvae of Dacus oleae were collected from infested olives in Northern Greece, and a small proportion of these were found to be dead. Adult flies were caught in McPhail traps at the same locations. The larvae and adults were fractionated by a series of steps designed to identify occluded and nonoccluded viruses. Virus-like particles were identified in small amounts only in the dead larvae.
