With all those hairs on the abdomen, is this a tachinid?

Moved from Miltogrammatinae, which is an alternate spelling of Miltogramminae.

Sarcophagidae maybe
A lot of the Miltogrammine sarcs have a protruding white face.

There are similar features
on the other one on this guide page. It looks like it's in the right family to me. Thanks.

I'd be willing to bet it is a tachinid, but that 'nosecone' should be pretty diagschnoztic:-)
