I thought this fly had extra wings, then realized that it's a mating pair. I think they might be Genus Sarcophaga, but I'm not sure. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Racing stripes.
Flesh fly (Sarcophagidae) has three, plus a red tail light. This is it. (I've committed the four-wing error, too. So often in fact, that I've given it a name: The Biplane of Love.)

Thanks so much!
