To publication reports studies devoted to Fruit fly pests presented during an "ad-hoc meeting" in Hamburg (FRG). This meeting was organized jointly by the Commission of the European Communities as part of th plant protection research programme, and by the International Organization for Biological and Integrated Control as activity of the Working Group on Fruit flies of economic importance. The encounter can be considered as the second meeting of the Fruit fly expert community, in a logical continuation of the CEC/IOBC Joint International Symposium held in November 1982 in Athens. The programme collects progress reports of all the activities developed by the Working Group, including work lines planned and in progress, and the communications presented, that are grouped in four sessions, Dacus, Ceratitis, Rhagoletis, Anastrepha, according to the major Fruit fly species. About thirty works are reported in full, concerning laboratory and field studies, genetical and phenomenological aspects, behaviour problems, and the strategy of control. The "ad-hoc meeting" permitted the participants to better focalize existing problems and point to the state of research involved in the control of harmful tephritids that cause serious economic damage in many areas of the world.
