Probably Archytas aterrimus
One other species is similar, but smaller with a proportionally longer abdomen.

Could be Archytas
This is consistent with Archytas as far as I can see: antennae like Tachinini, palps present, parafacial without bristles, eye bare, T3 with only one pair of medial marginal bristles.
