Berlin - September, 2019 - 3mm male

Hello everyone,

I am wondering if this is Ensina sonchi? I do not know if there are any similar Tephritidae. Any hope for confirmation?

I found it sitting inside a white flower with some small Coleoptera sp. I looked at a small list of host plants and they don't match. I am not a botanist, so i don't know the flower. Perhaps it was after nectar or resting. I'm not sure if it is freshly emerged or not. The pterostigma(?) seems paler than photos in the gallery.

Best wishes,
