Might it be D. melanopsis? What do you think Max? The dark markings appear too extensive for D. haemotodes.

Hi Kerri and Ross,
I do have some highly marked D.haemotodes. Makes ID tricky, but I think the marking patterns on the abdomen and the small brown patch of colour close to the thorax in the otherwise clear hind wing, make it D. melanopsis.
