Anal vein is long, so possibly Anthomyiidae. Excuse me for widening, not narrowing range of possibilities.

The wing is folded so the vein looks longer than it is. I think I see 4 postsutural dorsocentrals, which rules out Anthomyiidae. The very few species with 4 post dc are hairier overall. The pattern on the thorax and the hairy eyes also point to Muscidae.

Considering a lot of ac setae; hairy eyes and thoracic pattern the choice may be narrowed.
It is either Polietes (lardarius?) or Phaonia (trimaculata?)
