Female Anthomyiidae. There are very few endemic species of this family in Australia, but it looks like Delia urbana Malloch as I think I can see an anteroventral seta on the mid tibia. But don't take this as a definite det.

If it helps narrow it down.

Thanks for the higher resolution photo, it makes it possible to identify it. It's not Delia urbana Mall. because the prealar setae is too long, and the anteroventral seta on mid tibia is also much longer than urbana. It is Adia cinerella Fall. note the protruding mouth margin. This fly is an introduced fly to Australia, and breeds in dung. Now found in most parts of the world. Probably came over in the C19 on a ship, and has spread all over Australia

As this is definite det, why don't you add it to the gallery?

I agree - nice photo and we don't have a lot of anthos in the gallery Smile

Sorry, people, I was ' out of town' for a while and just then a database table hit the limit. I gave it more breathing space.
