I photographed this fly in the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, 1700m a.s.l. on February 19th 2023. I think it's a Tephritidae, but is ti possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

I found it on a Bidens sp., and I'm assuming this is its host plant. However, since I'm not completely sure of its identification I'm also adding a photo of it for eventual comments/corrections.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
