Thread subject: :: Drosophilidae? => Drosophila (unimaculata?)

I've noticed my flash has bleached out visible infuscation at times. But on Mike's key the split to go to D.unimaculata vs seems to be 6 vs 8 rows of acrostichal hairs too, which would point more to the latter ?

Note also that the fly is darker to the eye than appears on many images above - thorax and abdomen appeared notably dark grey - closer to the 2nd and 4th image above. The other images are much more bleached / off colour than reality due to my poor photography skills and lack of post-production.
