Dung fly (Scathophaga stercoraria)

Dung fly (Scathophaga stercoraria):

Hi Folks,

I found this dung fly (Scathophaga stercoraria) yesterday on the underside of a leaf (SJ450669). I think it has been killed by a parasitic fungus (Entomophthora muscae)? I've had a look on the web and it has the characteristic pose with it's wings outspread. But I'm not sure and could be way of the mark!

Cheers,
Paul
