Tachinid ID help please

Hi, I photographed this female Tachinid on Ox-eye daisy at Martley Church, Worcestershire on 27.6.19. Sorry about the poor shot...but it was all I could get! I'd be very grateful if anyone can identify it.

Perhaps a Gymnosoma species. The jizz looks right, and abdominal colour patterns are variable, though I must admit I've never seen one quite like this.

Hello,

It's a male of Cistogaster globosa.
