Gnophomyia tristissima, I think. Mating on a rotting log in moist forest. Second pic shows, I think, mate guarding while female oviposits into bark (that's what the larvae eat). Third pic shows reason why mate guarding necessary. It was hard to choose just three pics ... such a lively scene on that log.
