I guess it is from the family Tachinidae, and would like to get help in their identification, because it is very common here in the region where I live.

Definitely Tachinidae - possibly Blondeliini Smile Lovely photos!

Keep the photos coming ... it's always good to see neotropical tachinids and there are a few that I can identify - honestly! Wink

Very unlikely ... the Blondeliini were the worst tribe that Monty Wood had to deal with when he constructed his Central American key. It took him months and months of frustration because it is so difficult to split the genera logically.

I have seen many similar flies from the neotropics but whenever I tried keying them I got lost! Wink You have to remember that the only key to genera that we have was designed to work in Costa Rica (and Monty acknowledges that it isn't even complete for Central America) ... so any fauna from Colombia southwards is pushing the key further than it was intended to work - and the biodiversity of the tachinids goes sky-high as you enter the Andean & Amazonian regions.
