Fly with parasites Id assistance request

Hi,

    I have attached some photos taken in late May of a fly that has what seems a large number of parasites attached to the abdomen.  Any assistance towards an Id of the Fly and the parasites would be greatly appreciated.


   Regards  Chas

Appears to be Fannia manicata with a batch of gamasid mites hitching a lift.
