Fly - Trypeta flaveola

Fly - Trypeta flaveola
Allison Park, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA

Moved from Fruit Flies.

It goes to Trypeta tortile in the fruit fly handbook but that's a rare species so I need to check.

Similar to this one of Charley's

Wing pattern does seem to match the one for flaveola in the paper he sites but I didn't read the paper.

Tortile is now a synonym of flaveola, so my use of the 1993 key was correct but the information was obsolete.
