Can you possibly help me fill in the blank - namely what family does
Drosophila melanogaster belong to?

I assume the following classifcation is correct:

Kingdom - Anamalia
Phylum - Arthropoda
Class - Insecta
Order - Diptera
Family - ???
Genus - Drosophila
Species - melanogaster

Thanks for your help!
