Body length about 10mm. Small head with all-encompassing eyes. High domed thorax. Very large calypters.
On Leptospermum or Kunzea sp. flowers at the edge of a local national park.
This fly is so similar to a 'potter wasp', which appears at the same time of year, that I think there must be some mimicry relationship. All suggestions welcome on that subject! See wasp here.... http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/163...
To the owner of the Hymenopterans mission sorry but a bug is stopping me from removing this spotting. I'll keep trying.
