A smiling straphanger caught on camera after allegedly fondling himself on a Queens R train last month has been arrested, cops said.

The man was on the train, which was near the Queens Plaza station in Long Island City, about 5:40 p.m. on Jan. 23, when he committed the lewd act.

While sitting on the train, he put his hands in his pants and started to fondle himself in front of a 47-year-old woman, cops said. The man then got off the subway at the next stop.

Before exiting the train, he was caught on camera, with one shot capturing him “saying cheese.”

The man allegedly shown in the photos that were released by police — 33-year-old Wilmer Busto —  was charged with public lewdness, police said Wednesday.
