Tachinidae. Possibly Blondeliini. The large eyes and narrow frons got me thinking of Calodexia, but that genus parasitizes cockroaches fleeing army ants and should not be attracted to light. More likely you have a beetle parasite.

I once had a Morpho butterfly attrackted to light...

Anyway, I'll just file it as cf. Blondeliini for now. Thanks!
