Another Tachinid Fly

A male Phania funesta (Diptera: Tachinidae).  Identified using Chris Raper's and Matt Smith's revision 5c of Belshaw's 1993 Key which was distributed for their Tachinid Workshop in February 2014.

[Initially I thought this was a female Freraea gagatea but the median vein is too bent for that species.]

Specimen taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2014-07-26.
