Chloropidae: Chloropinae
It's subfamily Chloropinae but I can't be confident about the genus without a better look at a couple of key characters.

 
Thanks!
I'll look out for another one and try to get some better angles.

Chloropinae?
White spot is haltere :)

 
Thanks!
I had no idea what that was, or what a haltere was until I checked Wikipedia.
