I think it's one of the Tachinidae - Winthemia?

I think it is at least Winthemiini. If it is Winthemia I do not see the details necessary to key it.

Thanks John! It's Sonia Coelho still active in entomology? Maybe she could recognize the fly by general appareance despite not being possible to key it?

I know nothing about Sonia Coelho. Of the other coauthors Jose Guimarães died in 2008 and Claudio J. B. De Carvalho appears to be still working on Diptera: https://cjbcarva....odiversity.
