Colonia del Sacramento, Colonia, Uruguay. Date 4 December 2019. In a flower garden beside a pond near Rio de la Plata and just opposite Buenos Aires.

I had this in the larger Adult Diptera forum. Thanks to Nikita V. who provided the family and to Waldgeist who said "Volucellini I think, something close to Copestylum."
