Netted flying around at night. I think I have the genus correct but not 100% certain. Possibly Heterocrossa exochana?

Description

Beaten from Ileostylus micranthus growing on Coprosma propinqua. Absolutely no idea what this is. Presumably a larvae of some sort? Very small, probably only 1 mm long. Only noticed it because it wiggled slightly when I was photographing another invertebrate next to it.

Beaten from Carmichaelia petriei. Seemed to be particularly common on dead portions of the plant but that may have been coincidental. Note that the second photo shows a Latridiidae (I think???) specimen next to the weevil, but it is not part of this observation.

Description

Pupa formed after parasitising a geometrid caterpillar. Caterpillar was found, and being reared, on Coprosma dumosa. See observation here (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/45343335) for the date of collection of the caterpillar. The caterpillar formed its own pupa before and a few days later the pupa for this fly appeared in the container next to it (having fed on and destroyed the caterpillar pupa). Caterpillar assumed to be Austrocidaria sp. based on host plant and morphology.
