Black Tesselated Golden Blowfly

Calliphora (Australocalliphora) canimicans


slightly larger than a housefly, grey blue with black markings on it's back and elements of gold around the wings and face. White face. Average sized eyes with distance between them. Dull red-brown eyes.


Determined to remain on the ground among the leaf litter although my camera made it very nervous. Leaf litter in an area landscaped with native plants and ringed with manicured suburban lawns
