Summary: 
Trigger plants (Stylidium species) and bees. (a) As this Leioproctus female probes a purplish-pink flower for nectar, the column strikes it on the top of the thorax, depositing pollen (note similar pollen on the hind leg scopa). (b) A Leioproctus female grooms whitish pollen daubed over its thorax by trigger plant flowers and transfers it to the scopa on its hind legs. The columns of the flowers are bent back behind the petals. (c) A small native bee (Lasioglossum?) sipping nectar from flowers of Stylidium eriopodum. The bee appears to have escaped being daubed with pollen probably because it is too small for the long columns (note some columns are strongly bent and presumably ready to trigger while others are erect having recently been tripped). Photos: Jean and Fred Hort.
