My Insect friend

Here are some pictures I took of the insect found eating Puccinia Psidii rust urediniospores.



I reared the larval stage (~1 mm long x .3 mm width) to obtain the adult form (~1mm x 1mm) and sent it off to the department of agriculture insect department for identification. It seems to be a new species of Cecidomyiidae.
