Vinegar Flies -- Drosophilidae

Some sources on the internet suggest to allow vinegar flies into a brew in home vinegar making. However I cannot find any scientific research on this nor any information if specific Drosophilidae species are involved in this process. I have allowed vinegar flies into my brew many times over (see attached photo) and vinegar making was always successful. The larvae just filter out at the end of the fermentation process. Does anybody have more information on this or lead me into the right direction. This would be much appreciated.

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
