Sapromyza nr. virescens Group – Macquart (1851) described virescens from a female specimen. The fly had a greenish-black body, contrasted by an orange head, antennae and legs (excepting the blackish tarsi). The wings yellowish. The description lacks details of thoracic and leg bristling. This species was not considered by Malloch in his reviews of the Australian Sapromyza fauna. The flies below are grouped here for lack of agreeing with one of Malloch’s recognised species but agreeing loosely to Macquart’s description of S. virescens from Tasmania.
