Dear community,
I'm a bit new with Diptera taxonomy and I have some problems to identify this adult. I've reached until Tachinidae.
I'd appreciate some help.
Thank you in advance

Tachinidae are not easy for beginners (and many other). You made an excellent start by providing both dorsal and lateral view. Pleae always mention locality and date.
This is the female of Comspilura concinnata.
If you check the venter of abdomen, you will find a strong sawlike belly.
