    The ocellar plate looks large and well developed here (the lateral edges are marked dark and there is a central black line on it running forward from the ocelli) which occurs in Chloropidae.

    There were quite a few of these flies visiting the flowers of this grafted Corymbia, growing as a street street on the nature strip. They were small (perhaps tiny is the correct term?) and fast as they flitted between the flowers. I know I'm pushing my luck for any tips or leads as to the ID, but figure this is the place to try!

    Just spotted Tony D and John Eichler's exchange in this post - http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/122296. Checked out those leads and think it's safe to say I've leave this one alone ... it's well above my grade! They were intriguing to watch and attempt to photograph though.
