American millipede with parasitizing flies - Myriophora

American millipede with parasitizing flies - Myriophora
Nelson County, Virginia, USA
August 18, 2016
This millipede (Narceus americanus-annularis complex) was found in moderately dry leaf litter, with two unidentified flies on its back that seemed to be attempting to parasitize it. The millipede was flopping around and visibly irritated, and it would be great if anyone could narrow down the flies' identity.
