The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 2,294 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Assess the occurrence and infestation rate of olive flies, olive beetles, olive lace bug and their parasitoids in wild and domestic olives in the Western Cape and to generate primary DNA sequence data. The data will include estimates of genetic diversity in olive flies, novel complete mitochondrial genomes and sequences for barcoding in six species.

Method step description:
- We propose to survey the presence, estimate infestation rate in wild and domestic olives and assess the genetic diversity of B. oleae and B. bigutulla, Argopistes spp. (A. sexvitattus, A. capensis and A. oleae) and P. australis (olive flies, olive beetles and olive lace bug, respectively) in the Western Cape of South Africa. We will generate primary sequence data on complete mitochondrial genomes for one individual of each species, and cytochrome c oxidase I (COI, the reference barcoding DNA region) for 50 individuals of each species. Complete mitogenomes will be used to reconstruct phylogenetic trees of Bactrocera spp., the Galerucinae sub-family for Argopistes spp. and the Tingidae family for Plerochila australis. Novel COI data will be generated and deposited in BOLD for barcoding purposes, accompanied by full taxonomic records. Complete mitogenomes, COI and mtDNA polymorphic regions will be used to assess intra-specific diversity in olive flies.
