General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Riverland and elsewhere
We thought these two were different species (they still may be) but saw an photo on-line of two breeding and the males don't have the yellow back. The male also has eyes closer together than the female (quite typical of flies).
