Anomoia purmunda belong to the family fruit flies (Tephritidae). In Europe this species is common and widespread. The adult flies reach body lengths of 4-5 mm. Their wings (in terms of identification) have significant dark markings. They are dark at the base. In the upper half of the wings you can see radial bends. One of them reaches the rim and runs to the tip of the wing. The females have a short ovipositor on their abdomens.
