Drosophila virilis https://tmbs.com/animals/insects/fruit-flies/drosophila-virilis
Drosophila virilis is larger than Drosophila melanogaster. It is excellent for pet food and for chromosome studies.
We start your drosophila cultures with adults from our stocks. New cultures can be shipped when larvae appear, usually about 7 days. New adults begin emerging in about 10-14 days. Be sure to order well in advance to allow for this.
Adult flies sometimes do not survive shipment, but eggs and larvae travel well.
