Insect - Clogmia

Insect - Clogmia
Pennington, Mercer County, New Jersey, USA
August 25, 2015
Size: 3.5 to 4.5 mm
Head curled under so measurement of 3.5 mm length is probably short by 0.5 to 1 mm. Wingspan in this position was 4.5 mm. Dark, right eye is visible behind right foreleg. Hairy, beaded antennae with damaged tips extend off to bottom right. It was dead, but I couldn't tell because it moved (even "flew") apparently due to static electric charges on it, plastic jar and tools. Too small to see clearly.

Moved from ID Request.

I believe. A moth fly.

Thanks, looks like
Clogmia albipunctata. Hope they stay outside!
