I've had another look at this and I don't think it's Amenia - there's white pollinosity on the postoccular area. This rules out Amenia imperials group and Amenia leonina group. The fly is too large to be Amenia chrysame, and in any case, the metallic bands on the abdomen (at least T3) appear to be broken up by dark margins, which is not a feature of any Amenia, nor any Rutilia (Ameniamima) sp. Parafrontals are orange, indicating its not Paramenia either. This female specimen appears to be either one of the Rutilia (Chrysorutilia) splendida-decora complex
(cf. http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_tachinids/GoldenHeadRutiliaFly3%20.htm), or a Rutilia (Grapholostylum) dorsomaculata (you won't find an image of this species online, though you will find misidentifications under this name - I'm making comparison to specimens in ANIC, which I can show to those that are interested). These match in terms of size, face and body colouration, pattern on abdomen, white postoccular area, and shape of head.



Confirmation of subgenus would require knowing the number of bristles on the postalar calli and sternoplerua, and being able to see the hair on the legs and suprasquamal ridge would also help.

The postalar callus in view *appears* to have a white pollinose spot, which typically is used to quickly differentiate Amenia from Rutilia, but the I can't tell if its actually a spot or specular reflection, or an image artifact. There's also a white patch on the far (left) side of the posterior scutum, which appears to be asymmetric. Its a difficult call to make given the image quality, but I'll put forward the identification of Rutilia sp. though this appear to be an aberrant example.
