Research suggests that the fruit fly Drosophila virilis (virilis group) originated in the deciduous forests of China or in arid regions such as Iran or Afghanistan, where it remained isolated from the remaining species of the group until relatively recently. The species now has a worldwide distribution probably due to human movements and activities.

D. virilis is one of 12 fruit fly genomes sequenced for a large comparative study by the Drosophila 12 Genomes Consortium. Its genome is 364 Mb in size and contains 14, 680 protein-coding genes (83% of which have homologues in D. melanogaster).
