The antenna is located anteriorly on the head between the face and frons. In Tephritidae it is comprised of three large segments (scape, pedicel, and first flagellomere) and a slender arista that arises dorsally near the base of the first flagellomere. This character may be difficult to score if the antenna is projecting anteriorly rather than ventrally.
