Tachinid Fly



I spotted this Tachinid Fly on some cow parsnip flowers in Aquatic Park, Berkeley, CA. Any help in a specific species ID would be great.

Thanks for the ID suggestion Juan! I will start looking at Phorocera photos and see if I can find a match.

It looks like a Phorocera, but is just a guess, it's impossible to be sure without a stereoscope
