The 75cm dish I mounted on the roof didn't come with "wings" (not sure if that's the correct terminology).

Does a dish of this size need additional support when it's roof-mounted?

I'm thinking of running an additional long bolt through the bottom hole for reinforcement, but I'm not sure if that's enough.

The bolt below where you indicated should not be a long bolt but two short ones. One on each side cinched tight.

I would go with 5/8 lag bolts and then I would use bolts that have a square flat head and are short, I made a mistake with this using a long bolt as well then one day was wondering what these type of head was for! :), You use lag bolts and the flat head bolts and its not going anyplace anytime soon! :)
