Is this good enough for Geomyza tripunctata?

I don't have the specimen, so cannot check properly.
But it complies with the article "A review of the British Opomyzidae" by C M Drake, as far as the wing spots, and I think (but I'm a bit cautious about it) I can see the one strong seta on the anepimeron, as mentioned for this species - visible in the 1st 2 images. That would make it not soley rely on the wing spots.

Thoughts?
