Mated pair seen in flight - large, flying heavily. As I watched, hoping they'd land, the female fell about 1m to the ground (image 5) and the male flew off. I temporarily collected the female for photos (1-4) and measurement. She was at least 25mm in length. I've never seen such a large female here in the forest, nor one with this colouring or intricate abdominal patterning.
