Hi, is this Drosophila simulans? Gena looks relatively narrow to me, but I'm not sure.

The gena is rather broad (slightly broader than the length of the small setae on the ventral side of the gena) and in my book (Bächli et al, 2004) that makes it melanogaster.

Thank you Paul! I had a look at the very nice pictures in the work in the link below and I see what you mean. From the drawing in Bächli et al. (2004) I thought that in D. melanogaster the gena was broader.

deserves recommending as well. For a great part it is based on the thesis Miller 2015, but it enables also the specific determinations of other genera of Drosophilidae.

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
