Common Fly Musca sp. Near Aseroe rubra
Common Names: House Fly, Common Fly, Bush Fly
Species: Musca sp.
A common muscid fly attracted to the decaying scent produced by the Anemone Stinkhorn fungus (Aseroe rubra, pictured bottom left, see my native plant photogrpahy blog for more shots of this interesting fungus). The fly helps the fungus to spread its spores.
