Hallo All,

What Drosophila fruit flies are "attracted" to depends on 
the species - but whether we're really talking about 
attraction i.e. long distance orientation to a source, or 
arrestment i.e. staying longer at a source once encountered 
is something of an open question.  Even within a closely 
spaced array of similar sources not all are necessarily 
found by Drosophila which suggests a strong random element 
in encounters.
