Calliphora clausa Macquart 1848 is a senior synonym of Calliphora accepta Malloch 1927, but recent referral of the species to the genus Onesia Robineau-Desvoidy 1830 encounters the problem that Onesia clausa Macquart 1848 is preoccupied by Onesia clausa Macquart 1835. The name of this fly therefore becomes Onesia accepta (Malloch) 1927. A brief description is given of the fly and its distribution within Australia. The ecological significance of the fly is discussed.
