Mating Midges - male - female

Mating Midges - Male Female
Springfield, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
May 31, 2005
Size: ~2mm (each)
There are lots of these tiny black midges in my yard. This pair was on a peony flower. The male is the one with the plumed antennae.

Moved from Midges.

Probably Orthocladiinae
I think these are subfamily Orthcladiinae.
