nice find
I guess some kind of fruit fly...

looks a lot like Euaresta festiva
...just comparing it to fruit flies on this site. thanks for the tip!

I'm pretty sure you're good to genus.
These are tough to get to species, and I can't be of much more help. Wing pattern is most important, and host plant is often good to know.

hey, good enough!
it's lovely being a complete newbie, and thus happy for any level of identification.

Nice place, good attitude!
