Good one. Can you also add a little description of the place you found it like garden or jungle or farmland etc. ? (thanks that's what we use 'habitat' for)

I actually searched looks like Teleopsis quadriguttata but will go with safwsr Teleopsis sp. Hehe thanks Mark!

Is it safe to go with Teleopsis sp? Or just Diopsidae

Hi MarcoVC. Nice find. I think Machi is right with the fly ID.

I have taken the liberty of adding a cropped version to help with detail.
