Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA May 15, 2015 Size: 2.3mm Body
This is a small sized fly with very long antennae.
The hairy wings, which are missing the M veins, seem to indicate that this is a Gall Midge, most likely in the Cecidomyiinae subfamily and possibly something in or related to the genus Asphondylia.
This one flew in through the kitchen window, sometime during the night.
