Possibly Phryxe vulgaris (Tachinidae)

Another journey through the Belshaw key led to this result.  It's always rather a mystery tour and I had some doubts at one or two turns along the way.  Available photos from reliable web sources do not immediately refute it, and the clinching details to species seem to hang together.   The genitalia were more visible when I first levered them out, but unfortunately dried overnight before I took the photo.  At least the profile of the cercus remains clear enough, I hope, to enable this to be confirmed.
