Hoping you can identify this critter for me. Photo taken in Frankston, Victoria australia.
Signature: Thank you
The wings on this Robber Fly are amazingly distinctive. We hope we can provide you with a species name soon. We were unable to find a match on the Brisbane Insect website.
Trevor responds to our offline identification request
Sorry don’t know that robberfly. Aussie flies are very poorly catalogued and there are hundreds of unnamed species. Possibly if the person submits it to diptera.info or at times I have had good results from posting at davesgarden.com
Only two weeks to that fiscal cliff eh, hope you have your cash stacked away and plenty of beans in the cupboard.

Thank You Daniel.
