Nice fact. Isso é tão legal. Thanks, Karen. The curtain of my room is famous. :D Thanks, riekos.
Fun fact: Members of the order Diptera, the true flies, have the highest wing-beat frequency of any animal, up to an amazing 1000 beats per second! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...
Nice series! The first one looks like something from another planet.
Mark, this fly from my previous spotting was very small. Lanzz, thanks for the links and ID. Sorry, I thought this could be another genus. But I will add as Anastrepha. is the largest of all the fruit flies that I found. thanks, bayucca.
Diptera IDs are usually a nightmare. However, looking at Lanzz's suggestion I would probably have suggested the same one (certainly only after doing the search myself), perhaps with Anastrepha cf. fraterculus, unless it is confirmed by a Dipterist. So, Lanzz, I would say: Good job!
Whatever you choose it looks the same as your other 'Anastrepha sp.' http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/496...

Mark, thanks, but It will not work.. :( I do not know how to identify these flies, I cannot distinguish details in the wings, I'm confused, pessoinhas.thanks for your help,Bactrocera flies are dark. thanks for your nice comments, lauren, adi and melody :)
Can't agree with S longipennis here. Compare wings... http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/bsc/ejour...Probably Strauzia sp. though. Check more wings here... https://www.google.com.au/search?biw=156...
Fabulous shots Sckel.
Magnificent captures Kel! Loved it :)
Wonderful series Sckel, these are often so hard to get good pictures of. Love the head shot!
Agree with Maria... it's interesting to see it from so many different angles!
I think, this fruit fly is from genus Bactrocera ...- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bactrocera
thanks, James A McNair. I will not edit, I will leave the common name. I have two fruit flies identified as Anastrepha. Strauzia looks good. I really like this fly was of a different genus. thanks, lanzz e maria.
James, it is a fruit fly. Not a yellow fly...
really nice series!
