Team Pretty Fly showcases the process to discovery for new species of flies.


Dr Bryan Lessard a.k.a. Bry the Fly Guy is a research entomologist at the CSIRO Australian National Insect Collection. In the last year he discovered more than 150 new species of flies from Australia. The best part about discovering a new species is that you get to name it! The first species he formally described was a beautiful horse fly with a golden abdomen he named after the fierce Beyoncé. This species sparked a global conversation on the importance of taxonomy, the science of naming and classifying species.



Katie used her love for body art and bright colours to show that flies aren’t the disgusting, pesky creatures we think them to be. Upon closer inspection of Bry’s collection, Katie saw that each fly had amazing colours and gorgeous wing venations which she wanted to really showcase in this design.
