Description

These were in an almost dry lake on a sand island in a salty river system. It is seasonally wet only after rain.
Normal flies found in the area are Apiocera, Miltinus minutus, Miltinus atripes, Blowflies.
There are quite a few Flower wasps and Asilidae. Lots of Tabanidae.
I have not seen Therevidae here but it is possible.

Larvae were up to 15mm long.
Found on Private Property.

Native bee
Identified as Callohesma occidentalis on Bowerbird by Ken Walker: "Great to see that you recognised this insect as a bee as it does not carry pollen externally but rather it eats the pollen and stores it in the first segment of the stomach called the "crop". Many observers think of these bees as flies. I worked on these bees back in the late 1970s and they have always been a favourite. Thanks for sharing."
