Thread subject: :: Tachinidae (now identified as Bithia spreta)

This fly was about 8mm and seen on Martin Down, a chalk grassland site in the south of England. The bristly abdomen suggests a Tachinid but vein M curves gently rather than bending sharply. Any help in identifying it would be appreciated.
