Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Tephritidae, Campiglossa ? -> C. misella

Yesterday, I found this fly in a (wet ?) meadow. I believed first it was a Tephritis
but after looking for the species I think it is closer to Campiglossa
, a genus I didn't know before. I'm not sure for the species but I think it is close to C. misella
. Do you agree ? The host plant must be present and I also found Oxyna parietina
not far away (there are Artemisia
plants but I don't know which species).

Yes, looks good for Campiglossa misella.

Thank you Ben. A new genus and a new species for me.
