Seioptera vibrans L. or Pseud
Seioptera vibrans L. or Pseudoseioptera sp. (I cannot not see the characters to tell)

Moved from Flies. Euxesta is a good possibility. There are some differences from other posted flies in the coloration of the vertex and subcostal cell but these may be gender or species level differences

Could be one of the show-offs in Tephritoidea.
