    It's tragic, if only it could remain as read only for reference, etc, at the least :-(

    I've seen some Larinia at PADIL with very similar eyes, so think it's in that family and possibly a closely related genus. http://media.padil.gov.au/species/137066/11410-large.jpg Cheers Brett

    Ellura Sanctuary says

    Based on the wing venation, wider abdomen and dark stripes on the abdomen I think this is Chrysomya rufifacies. Lucia wing venations generally have the 1st & 2nd vein coming from the shoulder well separated in two clear veins. Here they are joined looking like one vein. I think these are the Sc & R1 veins. This seems to fit Chrysomya more. Cheers Brett

    This one came to the night light the other evening. It has very strange fore-wing stiffeners near the body which I can't find on any antlions I look at. They are thicker veins than usual, with the usual membrane between. The body is mottled, not solid colour nor striped, all of which is a bit unusual. Notice the yellow spot on the side of the abdomen (in the ventral shot) I thought the wings had a white patch, so put in a wooden table to highlight it but must have just been a reflection. I've also bumped up the contrast on the wing shots to try and bring the venation out better. Cheers Brett
