General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee) & in the Adelaide Hills
A very small fly. At first it was hard to determine if it was even Diptera, with the hairy face hiding the usual small antennae of flies.
We suspect there are 3 different species here as they are different sizes & colours, but all with the striped body and pronounced hairy face.
