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.

A much higher resolution image is available at:

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

Hello, Sericomyia-Arctoph
ila... this synonymy is based on Nearctic material only. Although very respected authors, I think it is not wise to follow this synonymy without studying palearctic Arctophila

29.11.16 13:37
Approaching 2/3s, which I consider a very good result already. But there is room for improvement. Wink

28.11.16 17:26
so, Paul, almost 50% of the costs is not covered yet.

28.11.16 13:40
Thanks Theo! So it "should" be Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis.

28.11.16 11:45
It is a matter of opinion. Some (modern) authors consider Arctophila no longer valid at genus level.

25.11.16 07:51
Hello! Can someone please tell me what's the actual name for Arctophila bombiforme? There are: Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis, Sericomyia bombiformis and Arctophila bombiforme. Thanks Smile

Paul I submitted another (better) photo of Madiza pachymera for the gallery

21.11.16 11:49
Thanks Paul

21.11.16 10:36
FYI: The name can also refer to the Dipteran family Clusiidae, named after the genus Heteroneura (= Clusiodes).

Thanks John that's looks good
