tachinid fly with brown blotches on abdomen

Kendallville WMA , Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
June 17, 2019
Size: ~7 mm
After recently getting a similar fly from 2018 identified as belonging to the Tachinomyia genus, I wonder if this fly fits in there too? It appears to have the same colors and patterns as the fly I photographed at another woodland park (Chimney Rock Park) about ten miles away on June 1, 2018.

Exoristini
Thanks for moving this fly to the Exoristini tribe, John! I thought that might be where it belonged, but I don't have the expertise to key flies out properly.

Exoristini?

Exoristini
Thanks for taking a look at this tachinid fly, Arturo! Yes, Exoristini would be my guess for this fly's tribe based on its comparison to another similar fly I have photographed.
