Unfortunately I can't even be certain of which family this belongs in, either Tachinidae, or Calliphoridae s.l.

Its probably a tachinid, but definitely not Rutilia (there's no facial carina, and the eyes are haired). Its unlikely to even be in the same subfamily (Dexiinae).

I'm guessing there aren't any other photos?

Based on James's opinion, I've called this a 'Tachinidae (TBC)'.
