If you're looking for linkage maps, a good pseudoobscura linkage
map is in  :

  "Genetic Maps: Locus Maps of Complex Genomes", 6th ed. (1993),
     S.J. O'Brien (ed.), Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press,
     Plainview, NY.

  It's under "Insects" and the map was compiled by W. Anderson.
  I don't have the book, so it might have other species as well.

For a willistoni linkage map :

   Ehrman, L. and J.R. Powell (1982) "The Drosophila willistoni
     Species Group"  In  The Genetics and Biology of Drosophila
     vol. 3b, M. Ashburner, H.L. Carson, and J.N. Thompson Jr.
     (eds.), New York: Academic Press.    page 200

Good luck!
