    Hi Jeannie, thanks for the fantastic sighting - this is Libnotes terraereginae. There is only a single published account of this species from Mt Tamborine in Qld, however I've recently found the species to be present throughout Victoria and Tasmania, its great to now also have a verified occurrence in NSW. I wonder if you may have an exact location (or nearly so) for where you found the fly? Also would you be willing to send me a full resolution copy of your photo? Thank you again!
