Festive Fruit Fly - Euaresta bella

From the BugGuide gathering, I believe this is Euaresta festiva.

same specimen as 556194??
Moved from Fruit Flies.

Euaresta bella
It looks more like E. bella (Loew).

Actually, I see the USDA page for Euaresta festiva says the thorax color should be yellow, as opposed to "dark brown to black" for other Euaresta. Moving off the E. festiva page for now.
