No drosophilid, probably Pallopteridae.

not Drosophilidae. Maybe Pallopteridae (Palloptera quinquemaculata?)?

Hello People,

An often made mistake this one! Palloptera quinquemaculata (Pallopteridae) is the species it should be then. But that species has a small black spot in the wing base, the most basal crossvein is laso shaded and the body is more yellow. It actually is: Minettia inusta (Lauxaniidae). Often confused these two and also with Suillia variegata (Heleomyzidae) and Neottiophilum praeustum (Piophilidae).
