Thread subject: :: Tephritidae: Campiglossa (Dioxyna) cf. sororcula

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.

A Campiglossa (Dioxyna) so,m very possibly, sororcula Wd. on Bidens
