    Patrick O'Grady commented on an older version of Comprehensive Description:

    This statement is more relevant to Tephritidae than Drosophilidae, as the title suggests. Some corrections to the Hilty post: Drosophilidae (Pomace Flies) These small, delicate-looking tan or brown flies are occasionally seen in and around flowers. Most drosophilid species are saprophagous, feeding on yeasts in rotting fruit, sap, plant material or nectar. The larvae of many species feed on decomposing fruit, making them a nuisance in orchards but not direct crop pests.

    This is not Drosophila melanogaster, it is a member of the repleta species group.
