Drosophilidae - Vinegar Flies:
These small, ubiquitous insects are often referred to as fruit flies; in fact, fruit flies are a different type of fly that are pests on fresh fruit or cause galls on goldenrods and thistles. Drosophilids are instead called vinegar flies because many common species are attracted in large numbers to the fermentation and vinegars present in ripe or rotten fruit. Other species, including this mating pair, are found on fungus.
