General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), in the Adelaide Hills and elsewhere
~9mm long. This looks quite similar to Australian Sheep Blowfly (Lucilia cuprina), but the abdomen is larger & the black bands too thick. The wing venation also has Sc & R1 joined here, where as in L. cuprina they are quite separate. There are a surprisingly large number of these metalic green blowfly species.
