Not an expert
But wing pattern seems to match Trupanea, so it might be worth looking there.


Thanks John and Mattias...
I had already looked through Tephritini but didn't find any *exact* match. Maybe I shouldn't be looking for *exact* and should allow for some variance.

The closest likeness I have have found so far.

Too bad it isn't the best picture but I was laying in a bad position and he/she didn't hang around very long...
