Thread subject: :: Rhodesiella Chloropidae

A friend in the Eastern Cape of South Africa asked about this fly (some 2-4 mm). I live in the W Cape and also see them very occasionally, and I could swear that I Id'd them myself some months ago, but can trace neither documentation nor memory. I have an idea that it is an invasive fruit pest, but that impression is NOT to be trusted because I can find neither support nor denial for it.
Any ideas please?
