Anomoia purmunda (Harris, 1780)
Many Tephritid flies can be identified by wing pattern, but these do vary across individuals of the same species and a degree of care has to be taken. Anomoia purmunda seems to be fairly common in Nottinghamshire and frequents well vegetated sites including gardens. Certainly under-recorded in the county, as there is presently very little interest in our Dipterous fauna.
