Wow, that's a lovely tachinid - probably Dexiinae but without specimens it's pretty impossible ... actually, even with specimens it might be impossible LOL So many undescribed species out there Smile

The wing venation is very Blondeliini-ish, though ( probably the only word in English with a double ii twice !), and the long thrid antennal segment with bare arista might support this.
Yes, the legs are very long, but this is not unseen in Blondeliini.
