Yes, of course that I'm asking what is it. We are in the Identification Queries section and Diptera (Adults) subsection. This section is for asking for identifications.

You can see that the label doesn't included the name. If the museum had their insects in display tagged with the name easily visible I would not ask for them in insect forums. In fact, most of the display specimens are unlabeled, even without a location and data label.

Don't worry, somebody more knowlegdeable in Bombyliidae may appear here (David Gibbs, I hope). None of the genus you said fits, maybe only Poecilanthrax could be, but I can't find a Poecilanthrax like this one.

Thanks for your reply and effort. We will keep searching.

After some research I think that I've found it: Exoprosopa pectoralis. However, I need confirmation please.
