I think Tachinidae. There is a North American species Homalactia harringtoni with a similar wing. The genus is not known from South America.

Thanks. Looks like differently marked than H. harringtoni, and also bigger

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
