About Drosophila sechellia
Drosophila sechellia is endemic to (some of) the Seychelles, and was one of 12 fruitfly genomes sequenced for a large comparative study . D. sechellia is useful for research into speciation because mating with D. simulans produces fertile females and sterile males . Ensembl Genomes imports data from FlyBase, who also have much more information about the biology of Drosophila sechellia, and a phylogeny of the 12 sequenced fruitfly species.
