Wow! A Tephritid!
And from the tribe..., I believe Schistopterini. The smallest species knwon within the Tephritidae, and to my opinion teh most beautiful!
Unfrotunately they do not occur in the western Palearctic, I only know they are abundant in the Afrotropics, Oreintal, Oceanic and Austalian regions. They're hard to identify.

Despite the somewhat blurry image, a marvelous fly!
