This is a Tephritid from southwestern Brandenburg, seen in July 2015. According to the paper by Smit & Hamers (2006 (http://www.reposi...ent/159713) that gives a nice comparison of wing patterns I would name it Trupanea stellata. Do you agree?
Many thanks, Sundew

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
