Tephritid Fly

My first Tephritid of the year and my first ever Tephritis leontodontis (Diptera: Tephritidae).  Identification by Valery Korneyev here at Diptera.info.  As the name suggests, these flies are associated with hawkbit plants (Leontodon sp).

Specimen taken in the field below Chazey Wood, near Caversham, UK, on 2014-04-13.
