Dufouria spp (probably D chalybeata - Tachinidae by conopid

Following the brilliant workshop on Tachinidae at Preston Montford, I am keeping my hand in with this family. With practice they are not nearly as terrifying to determine as they may first seem! This one is Dufouria (nice and glossy black species). Probably D chalybeata.
