Hi, it’s me again.
As I noticed that the only photo you have of Euaresta flies is a blurry one, I’m sending this photos.
category/flies/fruit-flies/page/2/
It really looks like Euaresta festiva, but I observed that the wing patterns does not match 100% and I don’t think the plant where I find them is an Ambrosia trifida. I don’t see a closer species on internet.
This canadian site is a great source to identify Tephritidae.

Hi Cesar,
Thank you for sending these images of a Brazilian Fruit Fly.  We agree that your fly does resemble
Euaresta festiva as pictured on BugGuide, but the range seems to be more northern, so we doubt it is a correct species match, however, it is possibly closely related.

Thanks for the links Cesar.  Your English is fine.  It is much better than our Portuguese.
