Hello Bastiaan

Brilliant photo!! It's Syrphidae: Graptomyza , but difficult to say  
which species: it may be close to  G. oceania Shiraki, 1963 known  
from Micronesia, but it also resembles G. gibbula (Walker, 1860)  
known from Formosa and Celebes. having said that, I haven't yet seen  
all the Indonesian species.
