On our French forum, I first proposed T. magnicornis, but can we exclude Peleteria iavana ?
Thanks in advance for your comments.

Hello Pierre, I see the strong bristles on the cheeks: Peleteria iavana is correct, I think.

Check the validated oics of this species in the internet: very different.
This is Tachina magnicornis (or nupta). For one, it is a male with proclinate orbital bristles …..
