Description

Probably Boreoides tasmaniensis - the winged males in this species have been noted for lacking a closed discal cell, which is present here - though this may be another example of the variability of venation found in members of subfamily Chiromyzinae.

Description

Note that the genus Bellardia is currently not divided from Onesia in the Australian catalogs. This fly would more rightly fall into Bellardia in having only 2 post-sutural intra alar bristles, instead of 3 to 4 for Onesia.

Description

These (apparent) females where flying low, and rapidly, around open track - to the naked eyes while on the wing were similar in look and deportment to small crabronid wasps. They would briefly stop and appear to oviposit in the soil (?). Body length around 7mm.

Description

From specimen: foretibiae without spines; face moderately produced - thus more in line with Exechohypopion.
Following Roberts' (1928) key and descriptions for Australian Villini this is Villa vitrea, OR Exechohypopion nigricostatum of White's keys (1916, Hardy 1923), which Roberts believed White misidentified, instead being the former.
