Hi guys, me again,
Got this Snail Parasite Fly. Calliphoridae Amenia imperialis, in my backyard and thought you might like her. The larvae parasite snails amongst leaf litter. The male has eyes that are much closer together but apart from that they are very similar. Quite a beautiful critter really I think

Hi Trevor,
We wish we had a Snail Parasite Fly in Los Angeles.  Thanks for keeping our Australian postings freshly stocked.  Oz Animals has some nice images.
