Terellia longicauda (Meigen, 1838)
In terms of markings, Terellia logicauda is one of the less distinctively marked Tephritid Flies. It appears to be uncommon at the very least, across much of the UK and many records available via the NBN Atlas, appear not to have been confirmed. In Nottinghamshire, the only listed records date from Cotgrave in 1948 (White, O.M.) provided by the NBGRC (the Nottinghamshire Biological and Geological Records Center). But this fly is still present, with the one below being recorded by Peter Smith at Cotgrave Forest in 2019. Our thanks go to Peter for providing us with his photographs below, to illustrate this species.
