An interesting Tephritid, which I see for the first time. Maybe Platyparea sp. But wing pattern seems to be different from most discoidea. The recently described carpathica is clearly different. Just a variation of discoidea? or I am off with the genus?

I still think it is discoides with the isolated black spot at the costa just not connected to the general black pattern.

Gabor, you are correct with the genus.
I'd say Platyparea discoidea, but we know too few about its pattern variability. Do you have a chance to collect a specimen or two in the alcohol there?
Thsnk you in advance!

This was in an area with lots of ramsons (Allium ursinum), which we visit in the ramsons season. If I find this fly next year, I will collect it.

One thing that puzzles me is that this fly should be monophagous on Campanula. Campanula are typically late summer species. What does this fly do in early spring?
