It seems you have a small Drosophila zoo in Zeist... This time it is a Drosophila from the quinaria group (dark crossveins).

Hello Jan,
Thank you for naming my flies.
Indeed I spend many hours at the spot in cold and wind Smile
Especially this fly is not in our system yet.
I have a few more, I will upload in due time.

Just a note: There are several species of the quinaria group in Europe (e. g. D. phalerata); true D. quinaria is a Nearctic species.
