Thanks Paul! Do I understand correctly that it is impossible to determine the species from these photographs?

The chances of being able tio identify male of Megaselia from photos are slim (unless they have some conspicuous characteristics), the chances of being able to identify a female (as this specimen is) are even smaller.
