I suspect some other Ceratitis or close relative.

Fruit Fly (maybe)
The pattern of lines at the base of the wings reminds me of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly, Ceratitis capitata. However, the rest of the wing doesn't exactly match and neither does the body. Let's wait for expert help.
Maybe this is some other type of invader. Currently, BOLD has 70 species bins in the genus Ceratitis. Most of them are from other parts of the world.

UPDATE: Now that Dr. Hauser has placed the image, I'm going to update the info pages.
