  1. a Bactrocera peninsularis amplified strongly for 16S rDNA and fbpA but not for wsp, and the loci are therefore possibly pseudogenes. Bactrocera perkinsi amplified both 16S rDNA and wsp, however co-amplified pseudogenes for wsp, coxA, hcpA and fbpA, but lacked ftsZ [27]. Neither species was considered to harbour a true Wolbachia infection for any analyses
