I think this fly strongly resembles (if not identical with) Stenopygium punctipennis (Say, 1829), originally described from Mexico, also recorded from Bolivia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama and Venezuela. Cf. Soares & Ale-Rocha, 2020 (New records of Stenopygium Becker (Diptera: Dolichopodidae) from the Neotropical Region, and a key to species - Zootaxa 4868 (1): 129-134), figures here: https://zenodo.or...ds/4417405
