I found this, what I believe to be a form of Fruit Fly in my garden in July of last year, but have been unable to identify it.
I am a complerte amature, having just retired, and have developed a keen interest in all things small in my half acre garden in Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England.
This is one of a few I may need help with, so thank you all for any you can give in advance

Hi, Phil! Welcome!! Wink

Your fly is a Tephritidae indeed Smile Edit the title of your thread and name it Tephritidae for ID, to attract the attention of the experts in this family Wink

Goniglossum wiedemanni:
In the background there looks to be a flower of Bryonia dioica which is the host plant for the larvae of G. wiedemanni.

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
