Size: body length 18.0 mm.
We believe this is in the family Stratiomyidae (Soldier flies). It is a good match for
this photo of hermetia illucens.
Confirmation/correction would be appreciated.

Hermetia
The terminal vane-like flagellomere with the widely seperated eyes definitely point to Hermetia. McAlpine lists 12 species widespread in the south and southwest.
