    Would appreciate any help as to the identity/family of this metallic fly, seen visiting the flowers of a grafted Corymbia street tree in East Albury, along with many other insects.

    Karen Retra says

    Know any great Aussie fly ID resources? I'm super keen to learn more but struggling to know where to go to progress my fly knowledge and ID skills [ditto for way too many other things, beyond flies, as well!!].

    Thanks Rog, that is a great site and I haven't been visiting it as much as I might! I appreciate the tip.

    It's an unusual looking fly, not one I can remember seeing before. Without seeing the finer detail I can't confidently narrow it down. Though by unusual shape and look someone might know it by those alone.

    I would start with Tony and Kristi's great site on Insects of Tasmania - Diptera (https://sites.google.com/site/insectsoftasmaniadiptera/home) Karen. I find it very useful for narrowing down what the fly might be. There are plenty to get confused with but it is great trying to sort them out. Good luck
