Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks so much for your help. I've been doing a search on this and it looks like it is more likely to be Graphomya maculata as against G. picta. The abdomen shape seems to be right for this species, but I shall certainly look closer in the future. Just to know that it's Graphomya is a great help! Thanks again.
