Muscidae spp. species id suggested
28 Jan 2017
General appearance not unlike Australophyra sp. and others.
For example - http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/48380
Could be Australophyra rostrata (Black Carrion-fly).
Could be it "small dark blue fly is primarily a carrion breeder" from http://agriculture.vic.gov.au/agriculture/pests-diseases-and-weeds/pest-insects-and-mites/sheep-blowflies-in-victoria It's a challenge to find good descriptions of many insects!
Yes, Lucilia cuprina also has the same appearance. It probably needs the fine structures to be observed to determine the genus and species. Perhaps put it back to Muscidae sp.
