Drosophila busckii, photographed by Kim van de Linde.

Belongs within: Ephydroidea.
Contains: Drosophila (Drosophila), Drosophila (Sophophora).

The Drosophilidae is a family of generally small flies, often feeding on fungi as larvae. The great majority of species are currently included in the (probably non-monophyletic) genus Drosophila.

Characters (from Colless & McAlpine 1991): Antennal segment 2 cap-like. Proclinate fronto-orbital bristles generally present; postverticals more or less convergent. Costa broken beyond hm as well as Sc; Sc obsolete apically, free from R1. Mesopleural bristle absent.
