I only manage to get the one photo taken in Monte Verde, Costa Rica April 2019.

It looks a bit strange, the colors are off, I guess because it was photographed in the shade under a leaf and the scutellar spines are unusually long. But I still think it could be a female Cyphomyia, maybe even Cyphomyia wiedemanni.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
