Bactrocera (Gymnodacus) symplocos Drew & Romig, 2013: 203  . Holotype female in BMNH. Bactrocera (Calodacus) symplocos: Hancock 2015: 42  .

Material examined. Holotype: ♀ ( BMNH), Thailand, Doi Pui, Chiang Mai, 11.vii. 1991, Chantanee, bred from Symplocos  cochinchinensis, Bactrocera (Gymnodacus) symplocos Drew & Romig  , det. Drew & Romig 2013, BMNH (E) 2014 - 137, BMNH (E) 1493187; Paratypes (all BMNH): 1 ♂, Thailand, Doi Pui, Chiang Mai, 11.vii.

1991, Chantanee, bred from Symplocos cochinchinensis, Bactrocera (Gymnodacus) symplocos Drew & Romig, det. Drew & Romig 2013, BMNH (E) 2014 - 137, BMNH (E) 1493192; 1 ♂, same data except QR code label BMNH (E) 1493193; 1 ♀, same data except QR code label BMNH (E) 1493199; 1 ♀, same data except 4.vii. 1991 and QR code label BMNH (E) 1493207.

Comments. Bactrocera symplocos  was originally described from Thailand by Drew & Romig (2013) and was adequately described by them except for the male and female genitalia. Dissection of a female paratype revealed an elongate oviscape (2 mm), apically curved aculeus (2.07 mm), sharply pointed aculeus tip with four preapical setae ( Fig. 29View FIGURES 28 – 30) and spicules (0.006 mm high, 0.009 mm wide) of eversible membrane (2.5 mm) with one to three sharp projections ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 28 – 30). Male with aedeagus 2.1 mm long excluding glans (0.35 mm); glans of phallus with an unpatterned acrophallus, praeputium and trumpet-shaped subapical lobe ( Fig. 30View FIGURES 28 – 30).
