A fuzzy photo taken by a colleague today with a point-and-shoot camera of a flowering male Pimelea spinescens plant at Mount Cottrell, with what appears to be a pollinator in action. In another image the insect has its head inside the flower. Pollinators for Critically Endangered Spiny Rice-flower are not yet known, so we'd love to know what this creature is, at least to family if possible.
Observed this plant along the firebreak adjacent to Sherbrooke Forest along Belgrave/Ferny Creek road, heading down hill from Edgebrook track before we got to Ridge Track.
Thanks to those who helped with the id
