Fruit Fly - Trupanea vicina - Female
Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California, USA
May 29, 2012
Size: 4mm
Small little thing, I am wondering if this may be Trupanea vicina? It looks very close to the one on this site from the University of Irvine (http://nathistoc.bio.uci.edu/diptera/Trupanea%20vicina.htm.)
Wondering sex as well? Female?

Thanks for any help in positive ID.
