Black and Orange Tachinid Fly

From early summer: the relatively smooth-abdomened Tachinid fly Subclytia rotundiventris (Diptera: Tachinidae).  Up until a few weeks ago, I had assumed that all Tachinids had long spines on their abdomens, but now I know that some of them don't, I am working my way through my backlog of unidentified fly photos looking for others.

Photos taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2009-06-04.
