African fig fly - Zaprionus indianus

African fig fly (Zaprionus indianus) is a tropical drosophilid that has been on the move globally. It typically disrupts native drosophilid communities when it invades a new area. The black and white stripes on the head and nota are an aide in identification. (Photo credit: Douglas G. Pfeiffer, Ph.D.)
