Great video Mark. What sort of insect was it?

Sorry for the delayed response. I will post a photo of the insect. In perusing my copy of "Wings - an introduction to Tasmania's winged insects" by Elizabeth and Anthony Daley, I suspect it is a Crane Fly. They have a similar beastie labelled as Ischnotoma sp. on p117. Happy to be corrected.
