Hi Kim - what do you think? pasted below are the notes I put on another Melangyna sp

On further review of museum specimens from the far south coast (using ALA), I don't think we can distinguish Melangyna viridiceps from Melangyna collatus. There is some suggestion of slightly narrower, more pointed stripes in M.viridiceps specimens, but this is not absolute. In addition, even the museum has only identified some of those collected from this area (e.g. Nadgee) to the genus level. This may be a bit conservative - most contributors do label their images as Melangyna viridiceps - but I suggest that genus is fine in this case.

Sounds good Kerri, better to leave it at genus only.
