Wow - I have no idea which it is (perhaps Dexiinae) but it would be nice to have a specimen or two to run through the key Grin

No specimen, sorry. This was the only one I saw and we were in a big hurry at the time, so I got into trouble for taking these photos!

I will ask my sister to keep an eye out for it and maybe she can capture one (although she's not very fly oriented - more your birds, reptiles and mammals sort).

I happen to be the proud owner of a copy of Crosskey's 'Tachinidae of Australia'

It clearly belongs to the 'Prosena-subgroup' of the Dexiini.

I'd say it is a member of the genus Senostoma, like Prosena but without the proboscis

I think that title is incomplete... Maybe...
" A Conspectus of the Tachinidae (Diptera) of Australia, including Keys to the Supraspecific Taxa and Taxonomic and Host Catalogues" Is this the reference you have got, Theo?


Very nice fly, indeed.

Another photo of a similar tachinid like this one but, for example, with a conspicuous proboscis:

Yes, that is the one, Jorge.

Much too much work for me to typ it, thank you

The one with a proboscis is another genus
