From what I can see, B. varicolor seems correct, ...but I can't rule out B. trapezina a very similar species.
The differents only can be made by the shape of the cercal plate (more in a triangle shape) and the differents in the gonites.
B. varicolor also is a more common species.

I can see the shape of the cercal plate, but difficult to show it in photos.
It's Botanophila varicolor.
Thank you Johanna
