Tachinidae, I think. You saw this before and we didn't figure it out: https://diptera.i..._id=111145.

A species of Rhinophoridae from Central America has a similar wing, with weakly delimited markings and slightly converging R4+5 and M veins. The broad parafrontal plates are found in another American genus of Rhinophoridae.
