Pollenia rudis? - Pollenia rudis - female

Pollenia rudis? - Pollenia rudis - Female
North Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA
January 11, 2018
Size: body 10-11mm from image
I think I’ve got this one keyed out to Pollenia rudis using the Jewiss-Gaines/Marshall/Whitworth key (1) but I’d appreciate it if someone would vet that, especially my ID of specific thoracic setae. I’ve posted a lot of images to cover the character states used in the key so please feel free to frass any that aren’t useful.
Thanks for the help
