This fantastic bombyliid is an Aleucosia sp. according to the Jefferies.
Cor (who showed us recently amazing photos of flies from Turkey!) has also photographed one another Aleucosia - http://www.corzon...%20med.jpg though it is another different species.

Here the photos that Jean took on 27 September 2007 in Lupton Nature Reserve - Western Australia
