Found this fruit fly on a thistle (Cirsium sp.) at ~ 2800m altitude in the Rocky Mountains, U.S.
I think it may be a species from Europe, appears similar to an image of Cerajocera tussilaginis posted on this site.
I hope that someone can help identfy it.

Dear Hartmut,

It is quite similar to Terellia tussilaginis in appearance, though it belongs to a different genus. It's a species of Chaetorellia. I don't know which species, for I have no list of the US at hand. All species look very much alike. There is a very common European species C. jaceae, but at this moment I can't tell you whether that species has been introduced to the US or not. I'll have to look into my literature for that.

Best wishes,

John Smit

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
