I photographed this fly in Fontecchio (AQ), Italy, 650m a.s.l. on March 26th 2022. I think it is a Tephritidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?
Thank you in advance,

Thank you Ben! I don't know why, but the second photo I had of this specimen did not upload properly in the thread, so I'm adding it now. With such lateral shot, is it possible to say something about the species?

I have never seen it, but it looks like Tephritis divisa.

divisa is believed to be correct, but I have asked Severyn for his expertize.
